Congenital lactase deficiency, an autosomal recessive condition, is rare and presents immediately after lactose feeding with vomiting, watery stool, dehydration, irritability, acidosis, and lactosuria. Acquired lactase deficiency is more common and develops beyond the first 2-3 years of life, so it is usually not a problem in infants.
