What is NASH syndrome?

  • NASH syndrome: A form of fatty liver where fat and fibrous tissue accumulate in the liver. Fatty liver is normally seen in alcoholic patients but in NASH syndrome, alcohol is not a factor. The condition may be generally asymptomatic or in some cases may lead to progressive scarring (cirrhosis) of the liver. The condition has a variable progression.

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list NASH syndrome as a "rare disease".
