Abstract

Nine obese children were referred to our liver disease unit because of asymptomatic, long-standing (range, 4 to 49 months) hyperaminotransferasemia of unknown origin. Ultrasonography showed a "bright" liver in most patients. A hypocaloric diet was prescribed, and the hepatic abnormalities of the complaint patients showed a prompt and persistent improvement that paralleled the loss of excess weight.
