Natural course and comorbidities of lipodystrophy syndromes in Spain
Lipodystrophy syndromes constitute a heterogeneous group of rare diseases characterised by the selective loss of adipose tissue, which leads to impaired insulin signalling and other cellular functions, giving rise to metabolic complications that contribute to higher mortality rates in these patients. However, the exact natural history of these syndromes is not well documented, leading to long delays in diagnosis or misdiagnosis. This thesis constitutes the first real-life study with the objetive of evaluating the natural course and associated comorbidities througout the lives of patients with generalised and partial lipodystrophy (both acquired and congenital) in Spain in an effort to contribute to increasing knowledge of these rare syndromes.
