|The patient is a 61-year-old man with a complaint of general malaise. Distended abdomen has been developed in these two days. He has a long history of drinking. However, he has never been treated on alcoholic problems.|
On physical examination, his consciousness was clear. He had no fever. Icterus on his conjunctiva, several vascular spiders in his anterior chest and bilateral pretibial edema were observed. Moderate amount of ascites was detected by ultrasonography.
Therefore, I strongly recommended him to consult a physician in his home country as soon as possible.
