Aim. - The association between Liver fibrosis (LF), as assessed by either histology or Liver stiffness measurement (LSM), and the presence of Early kidney dysfunction (EKD) was investigated in this study, as was also the diagnostic performance of LSM for identifying the presence of EKD in patients with Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
