Abstract

We describe the case of an 11-year-old obese child with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis and Wilson's disease. Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, although frequently found in patients with obesity, can also be caused by other etiologies, including Wilson's disease, which must therefore always be ruled out in the obese child.
