BackgroundIn lipodystrophy (LD) adipose tissue function is impaired, leading to a severe metabolic syndrome. Familiar Partial LD (FPLD) type I (Kobberling Syndrome) overlaps with CushingÂ’s syndrome phenotype. The latter and the metabolic impairment observed in FPLD1 may suggest a crosstalk between the HPA axis, assuming that leptin sensitivity is preserved in this context. We aimed to evaluate if leptin levels are associated with glucocorticoid acti...
