Congenital Generalized Lipodystrophy, Berardinelli-Seip Syndrome


Congenital generalized lipodystrophy, also known as Berardinelli-Seip syndrome, is a rare genetic disorder characterized by the near-total absence of body fat from birth. This condition affects the way the body stores and uses fat, leading to various metabolic abnormalities, insulin resistance, and an increased risk of developing diabetes.
