The fatty liver is one of the important causes of the chronic liver diseases in both children and adults. Infiltration of fat in liver is associated with an increasing in its echogenicity, depending on the severity of the fat infiltration. In the present study, the prevalence of fatty liver was assayed in a group of patients who referred to the Khatam’ Hospital Zahedan, Southeast of Iran, for sonography concerning some diseases other than hepatic disorders. Patients with confounding causatives of fatty liver, i.e. using steroids, Methotrexatc, alcohol, as well as diabetes and pregnancy, were excluded from the study. The sonography of 247-screened subjects was performed and the diagnosed fatty livers were classified based on the standard grading. They were subsequently referred to the hospital laboratory for the measurement of their blood cholesterol and triglyceride (TG). The subjects included 177 (71.65%) females and 70 (28.35%) males between 30-60 years with an average of 42 years of age. The results showed that 81 cases (32.8%) indicated to have fatty liver. No correlation between the presence of fatty liver and age groups was observed. However, the observed fatty livers showed significant correlations with gender and the level of blood cholesterol and triglyceride (P<0.0001). Also, it was found that the TG level correlated with different grades of the fatty livers (P<0.01), whereas the level of total cholesterol showed no correlation in this regard. It was found that the frequency of fatty liver in the studied area is twice as many as that in other countries, putting a large population at risk of liver failure. Further studies are required to determine the exact causes of and their contribution in leading fatty liver, towards designing prevention and control programs.
