Every year in my company, I have MCUMCU in October 2018, my lungs are healthy. DanMCU oct. 2018 at the Radiology examination was written Rongten: left pleural effusion ec TB. What does that mean? At present my condition is healthy no complaints. Thanks

1 Answer:

Good evening Dani, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Left TB pleural effusion ec means, according to an X-ray examination, you are said to have a pleural effusion in the left lung caused by TB infection or tuberculosis. The term "ec" stands for et causa, which means "caused by".

Pleural effusion is a condition of fluid buildup between two layers of the lung called the pleura. Normally there is indeed fluid between the lung layers, but the amount is very small and only works as a lubricant for lung movements. But because of certain diseases, the number can increase so that it actually inhibits lung movement, causing complaints in the form of tightness, chest pain, fever, and cough.

There are many causes of pleural effusion, which knowing the cause is important to determine the treatment of pleural effusion itself. Among others are:

 Lung cancer. Tuberculosis (TB). Pneumonia. Pulmonary embolism. Sirosisatau decreased liver function. Kidney illness. Heart failure Lupus. Rheumatoid arthritis. So indeed, TB or tuberculosis can be one of the causes of pleural effusion. As we said before, handling this condition will depend on the cause. If caused by TB then the treatment as you live, taking TB drugs for approximately 9 months. But if the cause is due to cancer, certainly taking TB drugs will not have an impact.

Then back to your case, try to look again at the date and year on the X-ray. If the x-ray is taken before you undergo TB treatment, it is natural that the results will be. But if you take it only recently, it should be checked by a lung doctor why the x-ray results say you have the disease but you don't feel any complaints. So, hopefully answering your question.
