Prospective follow up of children with lipodystrophy
Polly Clayden, HIV i-Base
There are limited prospective data on lipodystrophy in HIV positive children, particularly with regard to the changes that take place during puberty, and the prognostic value and clinical significance of the different types of fat redistribution and lipid/glucose abnormalities .
Cross-sectional studies have estimated prevalence of lypodystrophy of 2-33% in HIV positive children in Europe.
