Core Tip Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a common disease in the elderly, in whom it follows a more severe course due to worse hepatic and extrahepatic manifestations. The former include nonalcoholic steatohepatitis and hepatocellular carcinoma; the latter include cardiovascular and metabolic complications. The pathophysiology, diagnosis and principles of treatment that are specifically relevant to elderly patients with NAFLD are critically revised here. Based on these findings, we conclude that a more accurate understanding of the molecular mechanisms of geriatric NAFLD will help in identifying the most appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic approach in the individual elderly patient.
