|Abstract:||We describe 17 children with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. All had elevated levels of serum liver enzymes and 16 were morbidly obese. Liver biopsy showed variable steatosis and fibrosis in nine patients. At follow-up, 12 of 14 patients had persistent morbid obesity and 11 had elevated liver enzyme levels.|
