In recent decades, obesity has become one of the most common metabolic diseases. Excess adiposity increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes (T2D), cardiometabolic diseases, dyslipidemia, fatty liver, and several types of cancer [1]. Much progress has been made in understanding the major regulatory pathways underlying adipose tissue inflammation, which represent one the main drivers of adipose tissue dysfunction and, consequently, of obesity-associated metabolic alterations [2].

This Special Issue presents recent advances in understanding the molecular processes that take place in adipose tissue inflammation; moreover, it discusses the impact of adipose tissue inflammation on systemic metabolic alterations associated with excess adiposity, as well as its repercussion in several pathological conditions.
