[Cytologic, biochemical and immunologic parameters of pleural effusions. I. Criteria for differentiating transudates and exudates].

Abstract

In 158 patients with pleural effusions the authors assessed 7 cytological, 26 biochemical and 6 immunological parameters in the pleural fluid. Using Light's criteria in 22 patients the fluid was a transudate, in 136 an exudate. The differences between the mean values of studied parameters were analysed.
