The metabolic syndrome is one of the most common disease of our era that may cause numerous complications. There are some studies showing the need to take attention to the hepatic manifestation of the metabolic syndrome besides its already well-known consequences. In most of the cases there are histopathological evidences for the presence of fatty liver and mainly non alcoholic steatohepatitis. These conditions can lead to hepatic cirrhosis, hepatic failure or even to hepatocellular carcinoma. The risk of these consequences is the greater the more severe the metabolic syndrome is and the more components of it are included...
