    Transcobalamin II (TC II) is a plasma transport protein for cobalamin. TC II deficiency can lead to infant megaloblastic anemia, failure to thrive and to neurological complications. This report describes the genetic work-up of three patients who presented in early infancy. Initially, genomic...
