LOPEZ PANQUEVA, Rocío del Pilar. Pathological aspects of fatty liver disease. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2014, vol.29, n.1, pp.82-88. ISSN 0120-9957.

In a normal human liver 5% of its mass consists of lipids. When deposition of fat increases, the terms most often used are fatty liver or steatosis. This includes non-alcoholic fatty liver disease whose acronym is NAFLD and alcoholic liver disease (ALD). A liver biopsy is still considered to be the gold standard for determining the severity of liver damage in either of these entities

Keywords : Steatosis; steatohepatitis; non-alcoholic steatosis; non-alcoholic steatohepatitis; NASH; alcoholic steatohepatitis; ALD; liver biopsy.
