ABSTRACT
The authors present the case of a little girl, aged 2 years and 11 months, with a weight of 22 kilos, height 94 cm, body mas intex (BMI) 25 an pounderous excess of 46%. Since the age of 2 years the child presented a strong ponderous growth that leaded to obesity. Afterwards there have been registered hyperthermia and trouble of sleep with a narcoleptic aspect followed by a progressive loss of the intellectual and motor acquisitions, sensitive and sensory deficits. These symptoms draw the attention toward cerebral disorder. The cerebral CT exam showed the aspect of a periventricular dystrophy bilateral and discrete dilatation of the ventricular system. The diagnosis was secondary hypothalamic obesity, in the context of a neurodegenerative disease. This clinical from of obesity is uncommon.
