Abstract

ANTONANGELO, Leila  and  CAPELOZZI, Vera Luiza. Collection and preservation of the pleural fluid and pleural biopsy. J. bras. pneumol. [online]. 2006, vol.32, suppl.4, pp.S163-S169. ISSN 1806-3756.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S1806-37132006000900001.

The samples of pleural fluid obtained by thoracentesis for the diagnosis of transudates and exudates shall follow a routine of collection and preservation for an appropriate laboratorial analysis. Equally, fragments of pleura biopsy obtained for the differential diagnosis of the exudates should be collected in a systematic way in order to optimize the diagnosis and facilitate the institution of appropriate therapeutics actions.

Keywords : Pleural effusion [microbiology]; Culture media; Biopsy; Pleura [pathology]; Exudates and transudates.
