Pleurisy (from the Greek pleuron : side) is the inflammation of the membrane that covers and protects the lungs, the pleura. This inflammation can occur either acutely (relatively quickly) or chronically (over a long period of time). Pleurisy is accompanied, or not, by the presence of fluid between the 2 layers of the pleura (effusion).
