a condition marked by lymphatic fluid in the pleural space caused by a leak in the thoracic duct.
a lower respiratory tract infection of the lung parenchyma with onset in the community or during the first 2 days of hospitalization.
an accumulation of purulent exudates in a body cavity, especially the pleural space, as a result of bacterial infection, such as pleurisy or tuberculosis.
