Pleural Disorders affect the pleura, that layer of tissue that wraps the lungs from the outside and lines the lung cavity. Pleural disorders can be classified into some broad classifications including pleurisy, pleural effusion, pneumothorax and haemothorax. Symptoms include rapid breathing, coughs, fever and chills.
HOW IS PLEURAL DISEASE DIAGNOSED?
Treatment focuses on removing blood, fluid or air from the pleural space.
