NCBI Bookshelf. Baradhi 2. Edema is defined as a palpable swelling on the body produced by expansion of the interstitial fluid volume. This accumulation of fluid in the interstitial space occurs as the capillary filtration exceeds the amount of fluid take out by lymphatic drainage. When Edema is massive and generalized, it is called anasarca.

Edema is swelling caused by excess fluid trapped in your body's tissues. Although edema can affect any part of your body, you may notice it more in your hands, arms, feet, ankles and legs. Edema can be the result of medication, pregnancy or an underlying disease — often congestive heart failure, kidney disease or cirrhosis of the liver. Taking medication to remove excess fluid and reducing the amount of salt in your food often relieves edema. When edema is a sign of an underlying disease, the disease itself requires separate treatment. Swelling of the foot, ankle and leg can be severe enough to leave an indentation pit when you press on the area.
What is anasarca?
This type of swelling is called edema. It often affects the hands, arms, feet, ankles, and legs, but it can occur in any part of the body. In some cases, edema can be severe and affect the whole body. When that happens, the skin and its underlying tissues will retain salt and water, causing swelling all over the body. This condition is called anasarca, also known as extreme generalized edema.

Anasarca is a severe and generalized form of edema , with subcutaneous tissue swelling throughout the body. Anasarca is often caused by a decreased oncotic pressure. It can also be caused by the administration of exogenous intravenous fluid. In Hb Barts , the high oxygen affinity results in poor oxygen delivery to peripheral tissues, resulting in anasarca.
