loss of facial fat
Jan 31, 2007

Is hiv the only disease where loss of fat occurs in the face and other parts of the body (specifically when not on meds) or are there other diseases that may cause loss of facial fat?

Response from Dr. Henry

Good question-I haven't seen other chronic disease research focus on the issue of fat distribution to the degree seen in HIV. If any reader is aware of a good literature citation on that subject please post for my/our education! KH
