About this section


Genetics Home Reference:21 Congenital leptin deficiency is a condition that causes severe obesity beginning in the first few months of life. Affected individuals are of normal weight at birth, but they are constantly hungry and quickly gain weight. Without treatment, the extreme hunger continues and leads to chronic excessive eating (hyperphagia) and obesity. Beginning in early childhood, affected individuals develop abnormal eating behaviors such as fighting with other children over food, hoarding food, and eating in secret.

MalaCards based summary: Congenital Leptin Deficiency, also known as obesity due to congenital leptin deficiency, is related to obesity, morbid, due to leptin deficiency and obesity. An important gene associated with Congenital Leptin Deficiency is LEP (leptin). Affiliated tissues include bone, thyroid and t cells.
