Objectives: Recent studies have suggested that bacterial overgrowth and endotoxemia along with its receptor, Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR-4), play a role in the pathogenesis of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). The present study was designed to test and evaluate the TLR4 gene polymorphism in patients with NAFLD in comparison to healthy controls.
