Abstract

The development of lipodystrophy as evidenced by central obesity, 'moon facies', and a 'buffalo hump' is a classical feature of Cushing's disease. Recently an association of 'lipodystrophy' with the use of protease inhibitors has been reported. We describe a patient with lipodystrophy secondary to protease inhibitor therapy for HIV infection.
