Abstract

Carotenemia is a common benign pediatric condition of yellowing of the skin and elevated beta-carotene levels in the blood. The condition is usually caused by excessive beta-carotene intake but is also more rarely associated with a few serious metabolic disorders. Carotenemia caused by high beta-carotene intake does not have serious sequelae; discoloration remits with dietary modification.
