A 59-year-old man with a history of hypertension presented with 2 months of progressive abdominal distention associated with abdominal pain and fatigue. Point-of-care ultrasonography revealed large-volume ascites. The patient’s abdominal swelling limited his activities of daily living and oral intake, resulting in hospital admission for new-onset ascites.
