Kagawa nevertheless concludes that the retrobulbar neuropathy is part of the beriberi picture. Denny-Brown critically reviews Kagawa’s evidence and observes that it is capable of reverse interpretation, namely, that retrobulbar neuropathy and beriberi are not part of the same syndrome. Signs of optic nerve damage have been observed in “pellagra” by a number of authors over the last hundred years. Pellagra, however, can no longer be regarded as a specific deficiency disease, and although niacin is an important therapeutic agent for some of the classical features, many elements of the syndrome remain unaltered with niacin therapy alone.

Signs a. General. There may be evidence of recent debilitating disease particularly dysentery, or chronic malaria. In well established cases, the face wears an expression of chronic distress with dark shadows under the eyes. They are often jumpy and are apprehensive a t the prospect of having their feet examined. Epithelial lesions of the scrotum and mouth of a deficiency type are present in nearly half the cases. Diarrhea is not a common associated feature although there is often a history of several attacks of dysentery.

The case is strengthened if edema, which responds dramatically t o thiamine therapy, is concomitantly present in the individual or the community. Deficiency of other food factors in the diet nearly always exists when beriberi neuropathy occurs.
