Abstract

A 15 year old girl with cystic fibrosis has been dieting and losing weight for 2 years. Despite being underweight she aims to lose a further 6 kg to become a "size zero". Her falling weight has been associated with deteriorations in her general health and lung function, which is exacerbated by poor compliance. The situation has been complicated further by her becoming pregnant. © 2008 European Cystic Fibrosis Society.
