Colorectal adenoma is linked to metabolic dysfunction. S. Fukunaga et al. (Kurume University School of Medicine, Japan) aimed to investigate the impact of MAFLD on the prevalence of colorectal adenoma by comparing it to NAFLD in health check-up examinees in a multicenter retrospective study. According to this study, MAFLD, particularly non-obese MAFLD, is the most important factor associated with the presence of colorectal adenoma rather than NAFLD. Colonoscopy examination should be considered in patients with MAFLD, especially those who are non-obese.
