Pleural thickening is a lung disease in which extensive scarring thickens the pleura (the thin membrane that covers the lungs). As the scar tissue grows, it encases the lungs closing off the space between the lungs and the pleura.
The condition is often a consequence of the inhalation of asbestos fibres into the lungs.
Victims of pleural thickening often experience tightness of the chest along with breathlessness.
Pleural plaques are caused in the same manner but are more localised and victims tend not to experience any physical symptoms.
