Corkscrew hairs on the skin of a patient suffering from scurvy, a deficiency of vitamin C (ascorbic acid). Scurvy is caused by a diet lacking in fresh fruit & vegetables which normally supply the daily requirements of vitamin C. Early symptoms include bleeding gums, followed by subcutaneous bleeding. Left untreated scurvy is fatal.
