Molybdenum deficiency

Molybdenum deficiency
Classification and external resources
ICD-10 E61.5

Molybdenum deficiency refers to the clinical consequences of inadequate supplies of molybdenum in the diet.

The amount of molybdenum required is relatively small, and molybdenum deficiency usually does not occur in natural settings.[1] However, it can occur in individuals receiving parenteral nutrition.[2][3]

Signs and symptoms

Because molybdenum deficiency in humans is extremely rare, its symptomatology is not well established.
