Pleural effusion

Pleural effusion

Pleural effusion is the term that is used to describe a collection of fluid that is located next to the lung. This may be due to lung infections, arthritic conditions, and heart failure or high levels of protein in the blood. There is chest pain and breathlessness; symptoms vary according to the underlying cause of pleural effusion as well as the severity of the condition. This fluid should be drained efficiently to reduce symptoms and prevent infections.
