Fatty liver is the accumulation of triglycerides and other fats within hepatocytes. When accompanied by hepatic inflammation (steatohepatitis) and the death of liver cells in the absence of a history of alcoholism, the specific fatty liver disease is considered to be nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, or NASH. The spectrum of liver disease encompassed within nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) ranges from steatosis without specific injury on the relatively benign end to NASH and NAFLD-associated cirrhosis, and even hepatocellular carcinoma.
