Fatty Liver, Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD), and Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) all refer to a range of liver diseases where there is an accumulation of fat in the liver of people who drink little or no alcohol.

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is common and, for most people, causes no signs and symptoms and no complications. But in some people the fat that accumulates can cause inflammation and scarring in the liver. At its most severe, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease can progress to liver failure.
