Core Tip Refractory ascites following liver transplantation is a rare complication with many possible causes. Constrictive pericarditis is a disease characterized by clinical signs of right-sided heart failure which in the advanced stages can lead to hepatic congestion and formation of ascites. As a cause of refractory ascites it is easily overlooked and it requires a high degree of clinical suspicion. We present an uncommon case where refractory ascites occurred after successful liver transplantation for alcoholic cirrhosis and was caused by previously unknown constrictive pericarditis. Pericardiectomy led to complete resolution of the ascites, and the patient remained symptom free until today.
