Effusions: where does this fluid come from: a cytological quest
Peritoneal, pleural and pericardial effusions are often recognized in clinical practice.
To further examine the cause of these effusions, several additional examinations can be of benefit. One of the most productive tests is the cytological examination of the fluid. This video will illustrate the most common findings in effusion fluids.
