Aside from the airways themselves, other parts of the lungs, including the pleural lining and pleural space, may also be affected by various pathologies. Most notable are pleural effusions, which are traditionally categorized as being either transudative or exudative. A transudative pleural effusion is a pleural fluid accumulation that occurs secondary to alterations in formation and reabsorption of pleural fluid due to systemic factors; an exudative pleural effusion occurs when the local factors influencing pleural fluid formation and reabsorption are altered, allowing for the accumulation of pleural fluid. It is important to recognize the leading causes of transudative and exudative pleural effusions so that you can quickly generate a reasonable differential diagnosis and initiate appropriate treatment.
