Light's criteria for pleural effusion

Light's criteria for pleural effusion

Light's criteria help differentiate whether pleural fluid is of exudative or transudative nature. The former is rich in proteins and cells and usually occurs in infective or malignant etiologies while the latter occurs in congestive heart failure or hypoalbuminemic states. https://www.grepmed.com/images/8814/exudate-pleuraleffusion-mednugget-im-respiratory
