This case study reports the progress of a 23-year-old woman with AIDS with inadequate food intake due to painful swallowing. Enteral nutritional support was provided for 118 days and a weight gain of 23.3 kg was achieved in 133 days. This demonstrates that enteral nutritional support can help to maintain nutritional status and facilitate weight gain in people with AIDS.
