Steatosis: Fatty live is most commonly caused by a condition know as non-alcoholic fatty steatosis or nash. Alcohol consumption may also contribute to fatty liver. Mono can affect the liver but usually resolves with time. Disseminated herpes zoster which causes shingles can also involve the liver, mainly seen in the immunocompromised state. Follow-up is recommended.
