abstract

  • With increasing rates of morbidity and mortality associated with visceral obesity, as well as its related cardiometabolic disorders, physical findings that aid in diagnosing patients at risk for such conditions are extremely useful. This brief report introduces the novel facial physical sign of bitemporal obesity, which the author observed in a patient and suggests to be associated with visceral obesity.
