Introduction: Pleural cavity is a potential space between the parietal pleura and visceral pleural. It consists of some amount of uid called pleural uid which is normally less than 25ml. Pleural uid is produced by parietal lining and absorbed by visceral lining. Fluid is produced by plasma ltration through capillary endothelial cells. Aims & Objectives:Acombined approach of cytology and cell block technique in diagnosing the cause of pleural effusion. To evaluate the utility of cell block…

Cells in pleural fluid and their value in differential diagnosis
TLDR
The most useful test in establishing the diagnosis of pleural effusion is pleural fluid cytology and Pleural fluid cell count, which aims at pointing out the etiology of effusion as well as a means of prognostication of disease process.
Role of pleural fluid analysis in establishing the diagnosis of pleural effusion Experience in College of Medical Sciences-Teaching Hospital, Bharatpur, Nepal
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the most useful test in establishing the diagnosis of pleural effusion is pleural fluid analysis which includes mainly its cytology and cell count.
Critical analysis of cell block versus smear examination in effusions
TLDR
The cell block technique not only increased the positive results, but also helped to demonstrate better architectural patterns, which could be of great help in making correct diagnosis of the primary site of malignant effusions.
Cytology of serous effusions. An investigation into the usefulness of cell blocks versus smears.
Approximately half of 351 body-cavity effusions from 263 patients were examined prospectively in paraffin-embedded cell blocks and in smears, while the other half were examined in smears alone. The
Etiology, clinical characteristics, and management of pleural effusion in Ilorin, Nigeria
TLDR
Tuberculosis, malignancy, and pneumonia are the leading causes of PE in a Nigerian hospital and a multidisciplinary approach is needed for optimal management.
