EXUDATIVE DIATHESIS – SELENIUM DEFICIENCY

Home >

Clinical signs of Selenium deficiency are known as exudative diathesis, characterised by the obviously pendulous appearance of the neck which on palpation feels soft.

This is the consequence of oxidation of lipid layers of cell membranes lining the capillary walls. The resulting structural disorganisation causes increased permeability and thus permits fluid to exude into subcutaneous tissues, most commonly seen as a soft swelling of the neck.
