What is the Pleural Fluid Test?

Pleural effusions are diagnosed using pleural fluid analysis. Pleural effusions are of two types.

  • Transudate occurs when certain blood vessels' pressures are out of balance. This causes pleural fluid leakage. It is usually caused by heart failure or cirrhosis.
  • Exudate from a pleural injury or inflammation. This can cause fluid leakage from blood vessels. Many things can cause it. Pneumonia, cancer, kidney disease, and autoimmune diseases are examples. Chest pain usually affects one side.

Why done?

  • Pain in the chest
