syndrome diagnosis adipozo-genital dystrophy is based on the presence of a common obesity with a characteristic distribution of fat and delays the development of sexual organs and secondary sexual characteristics.
Before puberty considerable difficulties may arise in the differential diagnosis adipozo-genital dystrophy, and obesity in children associated with their overfeeding.This form of obesity is much more common than adipozo-genital dystrophy.Please note that due to the excessive development of adipose tissue in the pubic penis size in boys suffering from severe obesity, may appear smaller than they really are.In children fat sometimes been some delay puberty, but ultimately sexual development occurs at them on their own without any treatment.Therefore, great care is needed in establishing a diagnosis adipozo-genital dystrophy as diseases prognostically favorable in little fat kids, even if they have signs of a delay sexual development.

differential diagnosis adipozo-genital dystrophy syndrome and Cushing - Cushing is not difficult and is based on availability at the last characteristic redistribution of fat, pletoricheskoy skin color and a number of metabolic disorders relatedwith hypercortisolism.
differential diagnosis adipozo-genital dystrophy syndrome Laurence - Moon - Beadle (Laurence-Moon-Biedl) based on availability at the last, in addition to obesity, sexual infantilism, and diabetes insipidus, growth retardation, mental retardation, retinitis pigmentosa, often - polydactyly andsyndactyly.
Patients adipozo-genital dystrophy should be subjected to a thorough neurological, radiological and ophthalmologic examination in order to clarify the nature of the pathological process in dientsefalo-pituitary region, which led to the development of this syndrome.In the case of tumor or inflammatory focus, as mentioned above, these processes are considered as the primary disease, and obesity, and hypogonadism - as complications of the disease.
