High geggi, accessive fluid around the heart is pericardial effusion resulting in an abnormal accumulation.

What causes pericardial effusion?
Pericardial effusion, and the possible inflammation of the pericardium resulting from it (called pericarditis), can have many possible causes, including:

•Infection such as viral, bacterial or tuberculous
•Inflammatory disorders, such as lupus
•Cancer that has spread (metastasized) to the pericardium
•Kidney failure with excessive blood levels of nitrogen
•Heart surgery
