Lipodystrophy syndromes.

Lipodystrophy syndromes comprise a group of rare, heterogeneous disorders characterized by progressive loss of fat tissue, mainly from subcutaneous compartment and occasionally affecting visceral fat. Lipoatrophy may be partial, localized, or generalized. The latter cases are usually accompanied by metabolic-related disorders, including insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipemia, progressive hepatic disease and anabolic state. Treatment for lipodystrophy has increased interest in recent years because a new lipoatrophic population-patients who have HIV-associated lipodystrophy--is much more numerous than the whole number of patients affected by classic lipodystrophy entities.
