Goats milk should not be used during infancy because it is low in iron, folate, and vitamins B, C, and D. And it has a solute concentration even higher than in cow milk.I think the best answer is vitamin d.

make 2500/- bucks by simple net searching.see for yourself.

jorvell-lange neelson syndrome(given in harrisson)

it points more towards ehler danlos or less to marfans:
ans. can very well be mvp,ar,mr.
AR is common in marfans.
MR is a complication in marfans.
BUT MVP is the most frequent abnormality(though not clinically significant) in is also common in eds type1.see marfans in robbins and eds in best ans can be MVP

1. Folic acid deficiency is the best answer. Infants fed on goat milk develop megaloblastic anemia either due to deficiency of folic acid or vit B12. (Reference Nelson pediatrics)
2. Prolonged QT interval
3. Rhabdomyoma
4. Hyperextensible joints occurs in ehler danlos syndrome. Marfanoid features are not mentioned, so it is not Marfan syndrome. MVP is the most commmon abnormality in these pts.
