Özet

Aim: Several studies have investigated serum ferritin levels in patients with chronic liver diseases, such as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, alcoholic liver disease, hepatitis C virus or hepatitis B virus (HBV)-related hepatitis and cirrhosis. However, there is no data on serum ferritin levels in patients with hepatitis D virus (HDV)-related cirrhosis. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether there are differences in serum ferritin levels among patients with HBV-related cirrhosis, HDV-related cirrhosis and healthy subjects.
