Abstract: 
OBJECTIVE : The main aim of this study was to explore the relationship between fat mass index and hip bone mineral density in a group of Lebanese adolescents and young adults. METHODS & RESULTS : 91 females and 111 males (aged 13 to 30) participated in this study. Body com- position (lean mass, fat mass and bone mineral con- tent) and bone mineral density (BMD) of whole body (WB), total hip (TH) and femoral neck (FN) were as- sessed by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Weight and height were measured, and body mass index (BMI), lean mass index (LMI) and fat mass index (FMI) were calculated. Body weight, BMI, lean mass and LMI were positively correlated to TH BMD and FN BMD in females and males. Fat mass and FMI were positively correlated to TH BMD and FN BMD in females but not in males. CONCLUSION : This study suggests that FMI is a positive determinant of TH BMD and FN BMD in adolescent girls and young women but not in adoles- cent boys and young men while LMI is a positive determinant of TH BMD and FN BMD in both gen- ders. OBJECTIF DE LÉTUDE : Le but principal de cette étude était dexplorer la relation entre lindice de masse grasse et la densité minérale osseuse (DMO) de la hanche chez un groupe dadolescents et de jeunes adultes libanais. MÉTHODES & RÉSULTATS : 91 sujets de sexe féminin et 111 de sexe masculin (âgés de 13 à 30 ans) ont par- ticipé à cette étude. La composition corporelle (masse maigre, masse grasse et contenu minéral osseux) et la DMO au niveau du corps entier, de la hanche entière et du col fémoral ont été évaluées par absorptiomé- trie biphotonique à rayons X (DXA). Le poids et la taille ont été mesurés et lindice de masse corporelle (IMC), lindice de masse maigre (IMM) et lindice de masse grasse (IMG) ont été calculés. Le poids corpo- rel, lIMC, la masse maigre et lIMM étaient positi- vement corrélés à la DMO de la hanche entière et à la DMO du col fémoral dans les deux sexes. La masse grasse et lIMG étaient positivement .
