    The prevalence of obesity has increased at an alarming rate in the developing countries, while its prevalence, which is still very high in all age-groups, seemed to stabilize in the developed societies in recent years. The obesity disease and the obesity-related health problems should call the attention of researches working in the field of anthropology, epidemiology, genetics, etc. to this worldwide public health problem. The understanding of the aetiology is always the very first step in the prevention, control and cure process of the diseases. Therefore, this paper aimed to review systematically the literature exploring the role of genetic factors leading to obesity. Human genetic studies indicate that the obesity is largely determined by genetic factors. The main candidate genes of obesity as well as their polymorphisms in human populations are shortly summarized. Syndromes associated with obesity are reviewed in respect of the severity of this abnormal form of nutritional status.
