Caption: This chest x-ray shows the presence of a right fibrothorax, thought to be due to a previous empyema. An empyema or pus-filled cavity located between the two pleural membranes, i.e., parietal and visceral pleurae, can give rise to fibrotic changes as the infection resolves, much like a scar formation, which appears as a denser area on x-ray.
