A Clinical Study on Malignant Pleural Effusion, Zay Soe, Zaw Aung, Khin Darli Tun. In this study we report our experience with 73 patients with confirmed diagnosis of MPE and discuss the clinical features, radiological findings, biochemical, cytological and microbiological analysis of pleural fluid, hematological and biochemical profiles Cited by: 1. Pleural content anomalies. Pneumothorax: a collection of air within the pleural cavity, arising either from the outside or from the driftwood-dallas.comthoraces may be traumatic, iatrogenic, or spontaneous.A tension pneumothorax is a particular type of pneumothorax where the air may enter (though a defect of the chest wall, lung, or airways) on inspiration, but cannot exit on driftwood-dallas.comlty: Respirology.
Features: The book begins by discussing the anatomy and pathophysiology of the pleural space and pleural diseases. The next three chapters discuss the approach to the diagnosis of pleural diseases including radiographic findings and pleural fluid analysis. The remaining 15 chapters cover specific types of pleural disease in detail. There is no detailed information about benign asbestos pleural effusion (BAPE). The aim of the study was to clarify the clinical features of BAPE. The criteria of enrolled patients were as follows: (1) history of asbestos exposure; (2) presence of pleural effusion determined by chest X-ray, CT, and thoracentesis; and (3) the absence of other causes of effusion. Clinical information was Cited by: 6.

Pathogenesis of pleural plaques. Relationship of early cellular response and pathology. Sahn SA, Antony VB. To study the initial pleural cellular response to asbestos and to determine the relationship between this response and the development of pleural plaques, a model of asbestos pleurisy was developed in both normal and nitrogen-mustard Cited by: Its pathogenesis is thought to involve cone and amacrine cell dysfunction in the retina.
There was even less of a clue with regard to their implication in the pathogenesis of rheumatic fever and glomerulonephritis.
Little is known about the pathogenesis of this cough, which frequently proves resistant to conventional antitussive therapies. The clinical relevance of asbestos-induced pleural fibrosis. Circumscribed pleural plaques and diffuse pleural thickening account for more than 90% of the asbestos-induced chest wall abnormalities, and their prevalence is expected to increase for the next 15 to 20 years.

Plaural plaques are patchy collections of hyalinized collagen in the parietal pleura. They have a holly leaf appearance on X-ray. They are indicators of asbestos exposure, and the most common asbestos-induced lesion.
They usually appear after 20 years or more of exposure and never degenerate into Pathogenesis Respirology. Epidemiology. Pleural plaques are strongly associated with inhalational exposure to driftwood-dallas.com is an extremely long latency (typically 20 to 30 years) after the onset of exposure driftwood-dallas.com asbestos is primarily used in construction and machinery environments, asbestos-related diseases in general, including pleural plaques, are primarily seen in men.
The pathogenesis of pleural plaques and pulmonary asbestosis: possibilities and impossibilities. Hillerdal G. None of the various existing theories on the pathogenesis of pleura plaques (PP) is able to explain their peculiarities.
Knowledge of physiology of the lung and pleura and in particular its lymphatic system as well as cellular Cited by: Pleural plaques are presumed to be the result of pleural inflammation caused by asbestos fibers that are transported to the pleural surface along lymphatic channels and/or direct penetration.
The former may explain why pleural plaques tend to be located near the stomata where asbestos fibers are resorbed by lymphatic flow (ie, Kampmeier's foci.
Sep 08, · Asbestos-related diffuse pleural thickening (DPT), or extensive fibrosis of the visceral pleura secondary to asbestos exposure, is increasingly common due to the large number of workers previously exposed to asbestos.
It may coexist with asbestos related pleural plaques but has a distinctly different pathology. The pathogenesis of this condition as distinct from pleural plaques is gradually Cited by: Dec 11, · Pleural effusion is common in various diseases and especially malignant effusions can have rapid onset symptoms such as dyspnea, chest pain, and coughing.
The diagnosis and the treatment approaches require several pleural techniques and knowledge about concomitant disease. In exudative effusions accompanying inflammatory reactions in pneumonia are the most common reasons. Cited by: 1. Pleural disease Occupational pleural disorders almost exclusively concern those who have had exposure to asbestos fibres (and perhaps also refractory ceramic fibres).
Nonmalignant pleural disorders, such as localised pleural plaques, are a relatively frequent occurrence, even in those who have had light exposure to. Pleural effusion is a respiratory disorder characterized by collection of excess fluid between the parietal and visceral pleura of lung.

Pleural plaques. The pleura is a two-layered membrane surrounding your lungs and lining the inside of your rib cage. If you have been exposed to asbestos it is very common for areas of this membrane to become thickened and to accumulate a chalky material. Pleural Plaques, Differential Diagnosis.
Posted April 11, by devadmin & filed under Articles. Non-Calcified Pleural Plaques, Differential Diagnosis. Pleural Plaques – occur as thin, thick, smooth, irregular or lobulated in appearance and may also appear as a focal elevation off of the diaphragm. Chest Wall Fat – occurring as extra-pleural chest wall fatty deposition in large.
Multiple geographic regions of pleural calcification (yellow dotted lines) are seen involving both the parietal pleura on the inside of the chest wall as well as over the diaphragmatic domes. Rarely a person with pleural plaques experiences chest pains and difficulty breathing. Diagnosing Pleural Plaques and Mesothelioma.
Most people diagnosed with pleural plaques had no symptoms leading up to diagnosis. Often, diagnosis is made after a patient has a chest X-ray done for other reasons. Plaques may appear on the X-ray image even. They do commonly calcify however, which is the reason they are called plaques and the reason they can be seen on an X-ray.
Pleural plaques that do not calcify won't appear on an X-ray and not all that do can be seen either – it depends on the density of the calcification.
