Özet

Background/Aims: Lipodystrophy is a rare metabolic disorder characterized by a near-total or partial lack of subcutaneous adipose tissue and is associated with insulin resistance. We aimed to evaluate the efficacy of magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) imaging to explore the fat content of the liver in patients with lipodystrophy and to determine the relationship between liver fat accumulation and clinical presentations of lipodystrophy.
