Estratto

La cavità pleurica è definita da una membrana sierosa che riveste la parete toracica e la superficie dei polmoni: la pleura parietale ricopre la superficie interna della parete toracica, il mediastino ed il diaframma, mentre la pleura viscerale avvolge la superficie del polmone e ciascun lobo, con relativo ripiegamento e doppio spessore a livello interlobare.
