Usefulness of Fibrosis-4 (FIB-4) Score and Metabolic Alterations in The Prediction of SARS-CoV-2 Severity
Int Emerg Med.
Hepatic steatosis had no impact on disease course. The presence of metabolic alterations is associated with severe SARS-CoV-2 infection, and the higher the number of coexisting comorbidities, the higher the risk of severe disease. Normal FIB-4 values are inversely associated with advanced SARS-CoV-2 regardless of metabolic comorbidities, speculating on use of these values to stratify the risk of severe infection.
