Riboflavin Deficiency

  • Grace A. Goldsmith


Riboflavin deficiency has been studied in many animal species and always results in failure to grow. This fact might be anticipated in view of the importance of flavoprotein enzymes in cellular metabolism. There have been reported a great variety of lesions, including changes in the skin, loss of hair, degenerative changes in the nervous system and liver, impaired reproduction, and congenital malformations in the offspring. Lesions of the cornea of the eye, cataract formation, and reduced formation of hemoglobin have also been reported. The specificity of some of these lesions has been questioned.
