Background/Aims: Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is a common cause of liver disease that comprises a wide spectrum of liver damage, ranging from simple steatosis to steatohepatitis. The aim of this study is to investigate serum hyaluronic acid (HA), TNF-alpha, IL-8 levels in patients with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis and to assess their potential value as a noninvasive marker for the severity of histopathology.
