    Article - En anglais

    A rare case of benign asbestos pleural effusion associated with aspergilloma is reported.

    A chest radiograph of a 75-year-old Japanese man who was admitted with right chest pain showed a right pleural effusion and nodular shadows in the right apex and left middle lung field.

    Thoracocentesis revealed an exudate with atypical mesothelial cells.

    An open lung biopsy showed aspergilloma in the right S2 area and no evidence of malignancy.

    Many reactive mesothelial cells were found in the pleura.

    A quantitative asbestos digestion study of the lung tissue biopsy showed high-grade asbestos exposure.
