AimsTo describe the phenotype associated with a novel heterozygous missense PPARG mutation discovered in a Turkish family and to compare the fat distribution and metabolic characteristics of subjects with the peroxisome proliferator activator receptor - (PPARG) mutation with those of a cluster of patients with familial partial lipodystrophy with classic codon 482 Lamin A/C (LMNA) mutations.
