Caption: Pleural effusion. Coloured frontal X-ray of the lungs of a male patient with a pleural effusions. The lungs are the dark spaces either side of the chest. They are smaller than usual due to an accumulation of fluid (yellow) in the chest cavity. The liquid compresses the lung, which leads to breathing difficulties. An effusion is treated by aspiring (draining) the fluid, which relieves the pressure.
