Excessive intake of hot, saline, food which causes burning sensation in digestive tract, excessive use of alcohol without following the rule of Madyapana, causes alcoholic liver disease with Ascites (Madatyaya with Jalodar) with clinical manifestation of hepatocellular dysfunction and portal hypertension. A 53 years old alcoholic male individual native of Jaipur, working in water plant, reported distention of abdomen from last 3 months with moderate breathlessness, hiccough and thorough swelling. Patient was diagnosed as alcoholic liver disease with ascites based on the information from the affected individual and by physical examination.
