Abstract

The ability to recognize, understand, and treat pleural effusions in the pediatric population is important for pediatric health care providers. The topic of pleural effusions has been extensively studied in the adult population. In recent years, these studies have extended into the pediatric population. This review describes pleural effusions in detail, including the different types and underlying pathophysiology. We then go on to provide a comprehensive review of the recent literature regarding the diagnosis and treatment of pleural effusions in the pediatric population.
