Answer

Fat redistribution syndrome in association with lipid abnormalities and insulin resistance is being described in HIV-infected children and adults. Presentations vary (eg, central adiposity vs peripheral fat wasting) and depend on factors such as race and age. Body habitus is altered because of lipoatrophy, lipohypertrophy, or both.
