Abstract

Since the advent of insulin analogues, the incidence of insulin-induced lipoatrophy has been relatively rare save for a small number of isolated cases. We report a case of severe disfiguring lipoatrophy in an 18-year-old female patient following a change in the mode of administration of insulin aspart from subcutaneous injections to continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII).This case highlights the need for further research into the causes of insulin-induced lipoatrophy and the need for caution when starting a patient on a CSII.
