The unintentional discovery of cirrhosis in a patient with prostate cancer lead us to enquire if some of the indexes/scored designed for the evaluation of liver fi brosis/cirrhosis, in Chronic Hepatitis C patients, could have helped us in the detection of incipient liver fi brosis, and its follow up, in this patient.
We applied seven indexes/scores using the analytical results obtained throughout eighteen years before the diagnosis of cirrhosis. The analysis of the results leads us to hypothesize that AP index, Forns Index, FIB4, and modifi ed Phol Score, could alert of initial fi brosis stages and its progression to cirrhosis in NASH patients.
