Objective: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic recurrent inflammatory disorder of the gastrointestinal tract which has an unknown etiology. In this study, we aimed to investigate the fatty liver disease frequency in IBD patients using transient elastography (TE) which is a non-invasive and accurate method for the diagnosis of liver fibrosis.
