Advances in HIV infected patients' treatment have modified their prognosis, making possible to consider their admission to the ICU for acute complications. HIV infected patients show nutritional impairments onto which changes due to acute disease are added. Thus, they are candidate to receive specialized nutritional support. The enteral route should be preferred for nutrients supply in case of necessary. With regards to nutritional support characteristics, it should be adapted to the metabolic situation, similarly to what is recommended for other diseases. It has not been demonstrated that the use of substrates with a pharmaco-nutrient capability (glutamine or arginine supplements or modifications in the lipidic component quality) will improve the immunological condition or the clinical curse of patients with HIV infection/AIDS.

Palabras clave : AIDS; HIV infection; Pharmaco-nutrient.
