Core Tip The development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) seems to be closely associated with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) even in the absence of coexisting comorbidities such as obesity or metabolic syndrome. Furthermore, the severity of NAFLD is associated with the increase in OSA severity. Effective continuous positive airway pressure therapy for OSA may improve serum aminotransferase levels and liver steatosis. As clinicians, our aim should be to screen OSA patients for NAFLD and vice versa those with NAFLD for OSA in order to early and better treat them before the development of potentially life threatening systemic dysfunctions.
