Pleurisy Topic Guide
Pleurisy: Pleurisy is an infection and inflammation of the fluid-filled sac that lines the outside of the lungs and chest cavity. The infection can resolve on its own, be treated with antibiotics, or in serious cases, result in draining of the essential pleural fluid and the subsequent development of adhesions, which can make it painful and difficult to breathe.
