Abstract <p>We studied the association of fatty liver with subcutaneous and visceral obesity in 46 male and 36 female patients with body mass index (BMI) over 22 kg/m2. The correlation coefficient between the ratio of the visceral adipose tissue to the subcutaneous adipose tissue (V/S) and the computed tomography (CT) number of the liver was -0.299 (P &#60; 0.05) and that between the V/S ratio and the ratio of the CT number of the liver to that of the spleen (CT-L/CT-S) was -0.335 (P &#60; 0.05) in the males. Partial correlation analysis after making correction for BMI showed an increased correlation coefficient of -0.485 (P &#60; 0.05) between the V/S ratio and the CT-L/CT-S ratio in the males. The odds ratio in the males for CT-L/CT-S below 1.0 and V/S above 1.0 was 3.25 with a 95% confidence interval of 1.02 to 9.39. No such association between the V/S ratio and the CT-L/CT-S ratio was present in the female patients. Multiple regression analysis with serum level of alanine aminotransferase, a marker of fatty liver, as an independent variable revealed a partial regression coefficient of -17.7 for CT-L/CT-S (P &#60; 0.05) in the males and -21.7 (P &#60; 0.05) in the females, validating the CT-L/CT-S ratio as an index of fatty liver. The results indicate the association of fatty liver as determined by the CT-L/CT-S ratio with visceral obesity in males. </p>
