This is the second part of a case study which focuses on some of the issues involved in the diagnosis, assessment and management of infants and children with 'failure to thrive.' In this scenario, Samuel is a 21-month-old child who has recently arrived with his family in a new rural setting and is being evaluated by the local medical practitioner.

Part I of the case study concentrates on important elements of the history and physical examination that need to be quantified in these sorts of problems.
