Core Tip We aimed to characterize non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) presentation with esophageal varices. We carried out a retrospective cohort study on 258 patients with esophageal varices at a single tertiary referral center. Of the 258 patients, 39% exhibited esophageal varices due to NAFLD-associated cirrhosis. The incidence of portal vein thrombosis was 47.5% in patients with NAFLD, 29% in hepatitis B, 17% in hepatitis C, and 62% in patients with other related diseases (P < 0.0001). Our study showed a proportionally greater elevation in liver transplant candidacy in patients with NAFLD and portal vein thrombosis.
