Background and Aims: Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common chronic liver disease in children and adolescents. Obesity is a major risk factor for NAFLD; however, it has been shown that NAFLD is not rare in nonobese adults. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of NAFLD in obese and non-obese children and adolescents.
