Abstract:
Non Alcoholic fatty Liver disease (NAFLD) is the commonest chronic liver disease worldwide and is a spectrum which includes simple fatty liver (simple steatosis), non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and cirrhosis. Simple steatosis is a benign condition but NASH may progress to liver fibrosis and cirrhosis. Why only some develop progressive disease is not known and maybe dependant on the pathophysiology.
