  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Inflammation of the lung parenchyma adjacent to a pleural surface may cause pleuritic pain.[] Berger HW, Mejei E: Tuberculous pleurisy. Chest 1973;63:88–92. PubMed CrossRef Google Scholar 2.[] Tuberculosis pleurisy generally resolves without treatment; however, two-thirds of patients with tuberculosis pleurisy develop active pulmonary TB within 5 years.[]

  • Empyema

    Rabbit EMP was characterized by the development of pleural adhesions detectable by chest ultrasonography and fibrinous coating of the pleura.[] Purulent pleurisy Pyopneumothorax Septic pleurisy Seropurulent pleurisy Suppurative pleurisy accessory sinus (chronic) - see Sinusitis antrum (chronic) - see Sinusitis, maxillary[] Low CO2 insuffulation pressures (e.g. 4 mm Hg) initially aids both in slow disruption of pleural adhesions and lung collapse.[]

  • Asbestosis

    Macroscopically, all had extensive visceral pleural fibrosis and extensive areas of adhesions, and four also had discrete parietal pleural plaques.[] Asbestos-Related Pleurisy Pleurisy occurs when layers of the pleura rub against each other. Pleurisy is sometimes referred to as pleuritis.[] Other potential complications include heart failure, collapsed lung, and pleurisy i.e., inflammation of the membrane that protects the lung.[]
