Abstract

A case of a diabetic women with coexistence of insulin-induced lipoatrophy and lipohypertrophy is reported. No plausible explanation was found for different sensitivity of subcutaneous fat to insulin resulting in both lipoatrophy and lipohypertrophy at different sites of insulin administration in the same diabetic patient. Lipoatrophy remained unchanged despite using human insulin around the affected areas. Lipohypertrophy was successfully treated by liposuction.
