About Inherited or Acquired Lipodystrophy

“Lipodystrophies are disorders of adipose tissue (fat) characterized by selective loss of fat from various parts of the body. There are several different types of lipodystrophies and the degree of fat loss may vary from very small depressed areas to near complete absence of adipose tissue.

The extent of fat loss may determine the severity of metabolic complications related to insulin resistance, such as diabetes mellitus and high levels of serum triglycerides. Some patients may have only cosmetic problems while others may also have severe metabolic complications. These disorders can either be inherited (familial or genetic) lipodystrophies or can be secondary to various types of illnesses or drugs (acquired lipodystrophies).
The following is a listing of the types of Lipodystrophy:

• Inherited: Congenital Generalized (CGL; Berardinelli-Seip Syndrome)
• Inherited: Familial Partial, Dunnigan Variety (FPLD)
• Inherited: Familial Partial, Mandibuloacral Dysplasia Variety (FPL-MAD)
• Inherited: Familial Partial, Kobberling Variety and Other Types
• Inherited: SHORT Syndrome
• Inherited: Neonatal Progeroid Syndrome (Wiedemann-Rautenstrauch syndrome)
• Progeria (Hutchison – Gilford syndrome)
• Atypical Progeria Syndrome

• Acquired: Generalized Lipodystrophy (AGL; Lawrence Syndrome)
• Acquired: Lipodystrophy in HIV infected Patients (LD-HIV)
• Acquired: Partial Lipodystrophy (Barraquer-Simons Syndrome)
