Core Tip Nonobese nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is likely a different entity than obese NAFLD, with its unique genetic predisposition. NAFLD in the nonobese population has been increasingly reported and studied recently. It is associated with components of metabolic syndrome. Interestingly, even though non-obese NAFLD patients have normal weight ranges, weight loss remains the mainstay treatment and was found to be beneficial. Diagnosis and treatment are similar to the obese non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Further research is needed for better understanding of the genetic and environmental factors affecting the course of this specific entity.
