    I don't think it is Budd Chiari syndrome; although it can occur in children and older adults, the median age of presentation in Asian countries is 45 years (it's slightly commoner in males).

    In non-Asian countries, BCS is more common in females and typically presents in the 20 - 40 age group.

    Abdominal swelling can be due to fat, flatus, faeces, fluid, foetus or a fatal growth (neoplasia); the dilated veins indicate that there is internal venous obstruction which might be in the liver or at any point along the inferior vena cava, the swelling is most likely fluid (ascites) but, in BCS, I would expect to see grossly oedematous (swollen ankles and shins) which are not present here.

    He could certainly be made much more comfortable with a peritoneal drain; a blunt trochar introduced into the peritoneal cavity to release the fluid over a period of hours.
