Abstract

General and visceral adiposity are associated with risk of cardiovascular disease. HIV lipodystrophy offers a unique patho-physiological model to study visceral adiposity, best described in the abdominal fat accumulation or mixed phenotypes, not necessarily associated with general adiposity. The object of this study was to evaluate the association of general adiposity and visceral adiposity with presence and extent of subclinical atherosclerosis as evaluated by coronary artery calcium imaging in HIV infected patients.
