HIV Lipodystrophy is when there is a loss of fat in certain areas of the body caused by an infection with HIV. HIV, or the Human Immunodeficiency Virus, is a virus that compromises the immune system and causes other infections of invade the body. The cause of HIV Lipodystrophy is still being studied, but some sources say it is caused by the HIV infection others say it is caused by the anti-viral medications. Commonly, fat loss occurs in the face, arms, butt, and legs. Fat can also accumulate in areas such as the upper back, chest, and abdomen. HIV Lipodystrophy is treated with a medication that helps the production of growth hormones.
