Alcoholic Liver Disease (ALD) is a spectrum of disorders ranging from simple steatosis to steatohepatitis and cirrhosis. Various non-invasive markers have been validated as reliable prognostic markers of fibrosis in Chronic Viral Hepatitis and Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease but their utility in ALD is least evaluated. This study aims to compare the fibrosis scores in ALD patients with non-alcoholic healthy controls.
