Liver disease, congestion, alcoholic hepatitis, and cirrhosis are some of the related causes that might bring about these results. Serum-ascites albumin gradient is the best single test for classifying ascites with and without portal hypertension [high BP within the portal system of blood vessels to liver from intestine, spleen, gall bladder, and pancreas].
