It is more common in twins, low birth weight babies, babies of high birth order and babies born to anaemic mothers. Late weaning, infections, particularly gastrointestinal,  parasitic infestation,  acute  and chronic blood loss, recurrent diarrhoea, steatorrhoea and poor diet as a result of anorexia are important  factors.
