Özet

Background and Aims. Hepatic steatosis and fibrosis are common histological findings in patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. In this study we sought to determine whether serum levels of three adipokines (leptin, adiponectin and resistin) show any biochemical correlation with hepatic steatosis and fibrosis in patients with chronic HCV infection.
