Clinical examination is an important practical method for assessing the nutritional status of a community. Clinical assessment of a community gives valuable information especially in regions where malnutrition is wide spread hence a clinical examination was conducted among the fisher women and preschoole·rs in the study area. The method for clin ical examination was based on examination for changes, believed to be related to inadequate nutrition that can be seen or felt in superficial epithelia tissues, especially the skin, eyes, hair and buccal mucosa, or in organs near the surface of the body, such as parotid and thyroid glands
