A case-control study of risk factors of clinical marasmus was undertaken to guide intervention efforts in rural Bangladesh.
Cases were children whose mid-upper arm circumference measured <110 mm and controls were children matched for age and sex with arm circumference >120 mm.
Between June 1988 and June 1989, 164 such pairs of children aged 1-4 years were studied.
The effects of various demographic, socioeconomic, environmental, and health factors, reported by mothers, were investigated in a multivariate analysis using conditional logistic regression.
