Abstract

The prevalence of lipodystrophy in an HIV-infected population and the risk factors associated with body shape changes were analysed in this study. Five hundred and four subjects were included. Among these, 201 (39.9%) had features of lipodystrophy syndrome (cases); 303 (60.1%) constituted the control group. Compared with the control group, the lipodystrophy subjects were different in age (P=0.01); duration of antiretroviral therapy (P
