Pleurisy (also known as pleuritis) is an inflammation of the pleurae, the membranes of the pleural cavity surrounding the lungs. There are many possible causes of pleurisy but viral infections spreading from the lungs to the pleural cavity are the most common.

The condition may either be primary or secondary and is often associated with a pleural effusion.
