Prevalence of fatty liver in healthy male adults accidentally killed.


In a previous publication the author found that the prevalence of fatty liver in healthy aircrew killed in aircraft accidents was 15.6% (1). This paper details the histopathologic features of livers in 166 adult healthy British males between the ages of 18 and 58 yr (mean age 29 yr) accidentally killed. The fatty changes are graded and 35 (21%) are considered to be abnormal. Of the 35 cases, 13 cases show fatty changes unassociated with any other histopathological liver findings and 7 show abnormal liver pathology without fatty changes. Possible aetiological factors are discussed.
