Complex Picture Emerges

Cardiac Cachexia Pathophysiology

Many studies were carried out in the 1950s and 1960s aiming at investigating special aspects of metabolic malfunction and changes in body composition secondary to chronic diseases. The evidence emerging from these studies made it apparent that multiple mechanisms act in combination, forming a complex web of metabolic imbalance with catabolism dominating the anabolic drive, resulting in weight loss. A first attempt at a comprehensive overview of the complex pathophysiology of cachexia with...

Lipoatrophy Associated with Multiple Symmetric Lipomatosis Launois Bensaude Syndrome or Madelung Collar

Multiple Lipomatosis Pictures

Multiple symmetric lipomatosis MSL is characterised by the growth of fat masses symmetrically located at the neck, shoulders, deltoid and supras-capular regions, proximal segments of the arms and legs, and at the thoracic inlet, a distribution reminiscent of the location of brown adipose tissue in the foetus. The remaining subcutaneous fat layer is markedly atrophic, allowing MSL to be included in the group of LDs Fig. 3 . MSL is reported to be highly prevalent in men, but several cases of MSL...
