Abstract :

Ascites is the accumulation of free fluid in the peritoneal cavity. All potential spaces including peritoneum have surfaces that almost touch each other with only a thin layer of fluid in between and the surfaces slide over each other. To facilitate the sliding, a viscous proteinaceous fluid luicates the surface. About 50 ml fluid is normally present in the peritoneal cavity for the purpose of luication. Subclinical amount of fluid as little as 100 ml may be detected by abdominal USG. Aims and objectives of the study was To know different etiology of ascites,Toknow different types of ascites,To know prevalence of different types of ascites,To know most common and least common cause of ascites in this demographic region. In the present study, 50 patients with clinically evident asites of both sexes and various age group were selected and studied for etiological profile of ascites. The purpose of the study was to know different etiology of ascites, to know different types of ascites and to know most common and less common cause of ascites.Conclusions that have been drawn from the present study are, High gradient ascites is more common than low gradient ascites in this demographic region(94% vs 6%),Cirrhosis is the most common cause of ascites.(76%),Cirrhosis is the most common cause of high gradient ascites,Alcohol abuse is the most common cause responsible for development of cirrhosis,Alcohol abuse is exclusively linked to males,Viral hepatitis is the second most common cause for development of cirrhosis ,Peritoneal tuberculosis is the most common cause of low gradient ascites,Quantity and duration of alcohol intake is the most important risk factor for development of alcoholic liver disease
