Background: Fatty liver disease (NAFLD-non-alcoholic fatty liver disease) is one of the most common causes of-, and indications for-  chronic liver diseaseand liver transplant (LTx), respectively. NAFLD arising after LTx for another indication is called the de novo NAFLD.
Aim: To determine by MRI the incidence of de novo NAFLD in patients(pts) after LTx at the Transplant Centre (TC) B. Bystrica (BB), Slovakia. 
Patients and Methods: Prospective data analysisof consecutive pts  after LTx. Thestudy interval - January 2015 and December 2019. We analysed: 1) anthropometric measurements; 2) Lab Tests needed for FLI (Fatty Liver Index); 3) MR spectroscopy (MRS) and MR Elastography (MRE).
Inclusion criteria: LTx in TC BB, for cirrhosis of non-NAFLD etiology.
Exclusion criteria:LTx for NAFLD, early death (<3m), severe complications after LTx (>2m).
Recorded variables: Etiology,sex, age, Child-Pugh, MELD(Model for End Stage Liver Disease), BMI (Body mass index) at months 3, 6, 12, 24 after LTx,waist circumference, GGT(gamaglutamyltransferase), TAG (triacylglyceride), FLI at the same intervals after LTx (NAFLD≥60 = NAFLD [www.medal.org)] , MRS and MRE at months 6, 12, and 24 (MRS ≥5% = NAFLD; MRE ≥2,88kPa = signifficant fibrosis).
Results: During the study interval, 164 LTx were performed in 153pts.We excluded 6 pts(4%) transplanted for NAFLD and 52(34%) for pre-defined criteria.We included 95pts(62%), aged 50,4 years(18-70), 38% women, with MELD15,7p(7-34).Etiology of ACLD: ALD 44pts(46%),  PSC 16(17%),AIH 12(13%), miscellaneous 8(9%), HCC 7(7%), viral hepatitis 3(3%), Secondary biliary cholangitis (SBC) 3 (3%), Wilson‘sdisease 2(2%).BMI:baseline - 25,76; 3m-24,6; 6m-24,95; 12m-26,5 (p < 0,01).FLI:3m-46.00 (24.00, 72.00);  6m-53.00 (30.50, 77.00); 12m-51.00 (22.00, 79.00); (p=NS).MRS:6m-3,45,12m – 4(p=0,045); 24m – 5(p=0,08). MRS>5%: 6m-26,5%; 12m-32,1%; 24m-42,9%;(p=0,368).MRE (mean ±SD, p=0,368): 6m - 2,672 ±0,107kPa, 12m - 2,656±0,114 (p=0,123); 24m - 2,876±0,369; (p=0,197).MRE≥2,88kPa: 6m-26,8%, 2m-29,6%; (p=0,07); 24m-46,2%; (p=0,1).
Conclusion: We identified risingliver fat content and BMI over time after LTx. Six months after LTx, MRS detected liver fat>5% in 1/4 of pts. Six, and 12 m after LTx, fibrosis was present in 26%, and 29% of pts, respectively. Clinical impact is not known.
