Aim: Despite being one of common preventable deficiency disorders, vitamin B12 (vit-B12) deficiency can lead to serious health problems both in children and adult. The familiar treatment through parenteral route for vit-B12 deficiency frequently leads to poor adherence, and adequate response to treatment has lead to interest in oral supplementation. This study investigates the efficacy of oral vit-B12 treatment in children with nutritional vit-B12 deficiency.
