We describe two children with oedematous malnutrition; one admitted to a nutrition unit in Uganda and another to a paediatric department in Denmark. Both children received nutritional therapy and recovered. Although oedematous malnutrition is rarely seen in industrialized countries, the condition has been associated with chronic diseases. It is a life-threatening condition, and the pathogenesis remains unknown. Specialized nutrition products have been developed for low-resource clinics in developing countries, however, no specific protocols or products are available for physicians in Denmark.
