    Malnutrition because of lack of food and the interplay of infections is known as primary malnutrition, which is responsible for most malnutrition seen in the developing world. However, there is a host of basic and underlying causes of malnutrition that operate at national and societal levels (Fig. ). Malnutrition is widespread among disadvantaged populations living in developing countries. The consequences of malnutrition are severe and long-lasting. Children who are malnourished have longer and more severe illnesses (1,2) and have a higher risk of dying (3,4), .

    The combination of malnutrition and infection causes most of the preventable deaths in developing countries, certainly among young children. Malnutrition increases the risk and worsens the course of infectious disease; and infection leads to malnutrition. Thus we have used the expression “malnutrition−infection complex”.

Accordingly, nutritive management has to Cited by:   The authors made the case that malnutrition resulted in increased susceptibility to infection, and that infection caused deterioration of nutritional status, ushering in a cycle of malnutrition-infection that would ultimately lead to kwashiorkor (the clinical manifestations of which were usually triggered by an infection as well) and, if Cited by: A vicious cycle between malnutrition and infection has been long recognized (fig.
