The diagnosis: A boy is often overwhelmed, the parents are desperately looking for the cause - until a fateful encounter

Sometimes highly unusual encounters lead to the right diagnosis. This is what happened to an eight-year-old boy who came to my office with his parents for the first time some time ago. I learned his story: Even as a baby, he noticed that he hardly wanted to drink and only slowly gained weight. Later he began to sit and walk, and he found it difficult to speak.
