Ascites refers to an excess fluid accumulation in the peritoneal cavity, between the abdominal lining and the organs, which puts pressure on the stomach and lungs and can lead to life threatening conditions.
Ascites itself is not a disease, but rather a symptom of several other pathological conditions such as excessive sodium intake, cancer, and liver disease.
Severe ascites results in the retention of literally gallons of fluid in the peritoneal cavity, impairing breathing.
