Diffuse Pleural Thickening

Pleural Thickening is fibrous damage to the pleura (outer lining of the lungs), which causes the pleura to become thickened. This disease is often caused as a result of exposure to asbestos.

This condition can be caused by things other than exposure to asbestos, for instance old infections, tuberculosis or rib damage, which have healed but left their mark on the pleura.

If this condition is diagnosed, AND it is known that the person was also exposed to asbestos, it is reasonable to assume the cause was exposure to asbestos. The symptoms for pleural thickening are usually dormant for 20 years or more after the original exposures. In some cases though it can be less.

Symptoms of Pleural Thickening

Because the thickened pleura are on the outside of the lungs, its presence can restrict the lungs’ expansion and function. The symptoms will therefore most likely be shortness of breath ranging from mild to severe.
