SBP is still a serious complication with a dismal outlook. The prognosis of patients with decompensated cirrhosis and SBP remains dismal, with a death rate of 21-41%, despite the introduction of new preventive strategies such as early detection and treatment with albumin and new antibiotics. The incidence of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis lowers the survival rate to 31% after one year. To enhance prognosis in this situation, it is crucial to identify patients who are at a higher risk of passing away.
