Hi Basuki, Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


Pleural reaction is a term used to describe thickening of the pleura on chest X-rays. The pleura is the lining that encloses the lungs and chest wall. Pleural reactions are usually associated with pleurisy, pleural effusion, or the formation of scar tissue (fibrosis) in the pleural cavity. To confirm what happened to you, you should again consult with the doctor who suggested this X-ray examination. X-rays or other supporting examinations cannot be interpreted independently without information about the patient's complaints and a physical examination by a doctor. To diagnose a disease, a doctor needs to know the patient's complaints, have a physical examination of the patient, the results of which are then supported by other examinations.


Hope this information is helpful.
