Figure 1. Chest X-ray: On the left (A), the arrow indicates a thickened pleura. There is obliteration of the right costophrenic angle with fluid tracking along the right lateral pleura into the major and minor fissures. The fluid does not collect along the dependent aspects of the medial hemithorax, suggesting it is loculated. There is associated consolidation and/or compressive atelectasis of the right middle and lower lobes. On the right (B), shows chest X-ray after chest tube removal prior to first admission discharge. There is no radiographic evidence for a pneumothorax. There is persistent right pleural effusion with possible loculation and right basilar compressive atelectasis, unchanged.
