Cardiac failure. Small bilateral pleural effusions are seen frequently in acute left ventricular failure. Larger pleural effusions may be present in longstanding congestive cardiac failure. The effusions are usually bilateral, often larger on the right than the left. Other signs of cardiac failure – such as alteration in the size or shape of the heart, pulmonary oedema or the signs of pulmonary venous hypertension – are usually visible. • Pulmonary infarction. Pulmonary emboli that result in pulmonary infarction may cause pleural effusion.

Occasionally, particularly with an inhaled foreign body, a check-valve mechanism may lead to air-trapping. Inhaled foreign bodies are commonest in children; they usually lodge in a major bronchus.
