Lipodystrophy, Congenital Generalized, Type 3; Cgl3

Description

Congenital generalized lipodystrophy, also known as Berardinelli-Seip syndrome, is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by marked paucity of adipose tissue, extreme insulin resistance, hypertriglyceridemia, hepatic steatosis, and early onset of diabetes (Garg, 2004).For a general description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of congenital generalized lipodystrophy, see CGL1 (OMIM ).See also partial lipodystrophy, congenital cataracts, and neurodegeneration syndrome (LCCNS ), which is associated with heterozygous mutation in the CAV1 gene.
