Caption

Child suffering from marasmic malnutrition. This form is typified by severe wasting of the flesh, leading to skin folding (as seen here on the thighs). The hugely-distended abdomen is due to gases released by bacteria in the small intestine and stomach. Photographed in the Merca refugee camp in Somalia.
