In the absence of similar studies in paediatric patients, the findings from adult studies need to be considered. A consistent finding from adult studies is that simple steatosis without evidence of inflammation or fibrosis appears to have a benign course while NASH is a potentially serious condition, which can progress to cirrhosis.
