Abstract

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is an umbrella diagnosis that includes isolated fatty liver (IFL) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Histologically, NAFLD resembles alcoholic liver disease. It is defined by the presence of macrovesicular fat in more than 5% of hepatocytes in patients without a history of excessive alcohol consumption.
