Twenty one cases of severe vitamin C deficiency, including thirteen cases of scurvy, are studied. The blood and bone marrow pictures and the effects of treatment are considered. Theories as to whether or not vitamin C is an erythropoietic factor are discussed. Reasons are given for concluding that the vitamin does not play a specific part in erythropoiesis.
