Caption: Pleural effusion. Frontal X-ray of the lungs of a male patient with pleural effusions. The lungs are the dark spaces on each side of the chest. The left lung (right) is smaller than usual due to an accumulation of fluid (white, lower right) in the chest cavity. There is also a small effusion of the right lung as well. The liquid compresses the lung, which leads to breathing difficulties. An effusion is treated by aspiring (draining) the fluid, which relieves the pressure. This patient has left ventricular hypertrophy (an enlargement of part of the heart), a condition that can cause pleural effusions.
