Splenomegaly in the context of liver disease is classically associated with advanced cirrhosis and portal hypertension.1 More recently, we observed an increasing number of patients with splenomegaly and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), but in whom intensive work-up revealed no evidence of advanced liver disease or portal hypertension. In this study, we found no correlation between spleen size and histological stage of NAFLD, and a strong correlation between body weight, height and serum high density lipoprotein (HDL) levels.
