Definition of Body habitus
Body habitus: The physique or body build. For example: "The metabolic complications most commonly reported (with HIV infection) are hyperlipidemia, hyperglycemia and altered body habitus."
The term "body habitus" is somewhat redundant, since habitus by itself means "physique or body build."Source: MedTerms™ Medical Dictionary
