Approximately 25% of the global population has nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), a broad term that covers a range of conditions. NAFLD is defined by the presence of macrovesicular steatosis without secondary causes, such as chronic use of medications, significant alcohol consumption, or hereditary disorders. Several phases of progression are noted, including simple steatosis, fibrosis, steatohepatitis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma.

Prevalence rates of NAFLD are increasing drastically, and research is quickly evolving. Do you know important recent findings and their potential practice-changing implications? Test your knowledge with this short quiz.
