To the Editor: Diamanti et al (1) provide an interesting observation of 4 children with zinc and/or copper deficiencies associated with acrodermatitis enteropathica–like rash in 3 and macrocytic anemia and neutropenia in 1 patient with microvillus inclusion disease. Our report represents a large group of 24 European children who were referred to our center during a 14-year period with this rare and severe autosomal recessive disorder (2). A limitation of our retrospective study is that analyses of blood trace element and mineral levels were not available; however, all of our patients received standard parenteral supplementation of minerals and trace elements (3), and none had any reports of dermatologic features during follow-up. Despite the small number of patients in Diamanti et al's report, this information is clinically relevant. Providers caring for patients with microvillus inclusion disease need to heed this important message.
