Hepatitis C and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are both common causes of liver disease. Thus, it is not surprising that they can coexist in the same individual. The prevalence of steatosis in patients with chronic hepatitis C differs between studies, probably reflecting population differences in known risk factors for steatosis, namely overweight, diabetes, and dyslipidemia. The pathogenic significance of steatosis likely differs according to its origin, metabolic (NAFLD or nonalcoholic steatohepatitis) or virus related (due to hepatitis C virus genotype 3). Whether or not steatosis determines fibrosis progression is not yet unproven.
