    re: margueritem
    .
    Good question. Since it seems to at least partially be a B6 deficiency, it would tend to be in areas where the diet is more processed. Some places would have it badly and others might not have it at all. They would call it something else, though.
    .
    One wonders, too, if it became much more common when antibiotics killed off our gut bacteria.

    Silver threads among the gold
    Shine upon my brow today;
    Life is fading fast away;
    But, my darling, you will be,
    Always young and fair to me

    Enlarged (former) image can be found here, or at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry.

    The Sick Woman is shown, with a different coloration detail image (click-to-enlarge full painting), and described (Google translated — from her facial expression, looks like, to me, as others have commented, he’s more checking for a pulse than taking one), by its current-location page (Chrome can automatically translate the Dutch page).

    It is also described here, along with a different coloration, click-to-enlarge image, and accompanying click-to-enlarge detail image. Another different coloration, click-to-enlarge image can be found here.

    Several of the artist’s paintings show a similar scene. His Wikipedia page and collection (more under Subcategories at each level).

    Fourth, of the 8 works, by this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here.

    If you’re right about “checking” vs. “taking”; it looks like she went happy.

    Yes, I detect a faint pulse. Throw cold water on her. Give her a couple of aspirin and send her back to work !
