Comment on "Treatable" tag: The condition may present with failure to thrive, diarrhea, and dermatitis, and, if untreated, may evolve to include other sequelae of zinc deficiency, including immunodeficiency and neurologic manifestations, and medical management (eg, treatment with oral zinc therapy) can be effective
