Abstract

Nutritional therapy of a patient with ~100 cm of remaining jejunum, severe malabsorption, and high jejunostomy output is presented. A high- calorie diet, oral rehydration therapy, and vitamin and mineral supplementation were used effectively to maintain a reasonable nutritional state without the need for long-term intravenous therapy.
