Background: : Fatty liver disease is one of the dangerous outcomes of progressive hepatitis B or C infections and in the recent years had been known as one of the causes of cirrhosis and hepatic failure. Present study was performed to assess fatty liver prevalence among patients with viral hepatitis.
Materials and methods: This case- control study was performed to compare ultrasonography findings of patients who referred to Royan infertility clinic and Amiralmomenin Hospital with positive hepatitis B or C infection and also control subjects. Ultrasonography was performed for all of study participants and hepatic tissue changes, ascites, splenomegaly and hepatomegaly were evaluated.
Results: There was no significant difference between frequency of fatty liver disorder among patients with and without hepatitis B or C infection. Frequency of fatty liver disorders had not significant association with age and gender of study participants. Frequency of hepatomegaly was significantly higher among patients with hepatitis C infection compared with control subjects.
Conclusion: Present study suggests that control of sonographic findings of fatty liver changes and other related factors were necessary for patients with chronic hepatitis infection.
Keywords: Fatty liver, Ultrasonography, Viral hepatitis.
