Figure 1: Liver biopsy demonstrating three of the four histological features assessed in patients with NAFLD (Hematoxylin&Eosin). Steatosis (*) is represented by hepatocytes containing large to small droplet fat; there is peripheral nuclear displacement in the cell highlighted. Hepatocellular ballooning degeneration (black arrow) is characterized by an enlarged hepatocyte with rounded contour and clear reticular appearance of the cytoplasm due to clumping of the intermediate filaments. Lobular inflammation (circle) is present as spotty necrosis of a hepatocyte surrounded by neutrophils and lymphocytes
