Hello. My uncle has been diagnosed pleurisy and my mother wants to visit him. I am not sure whether to visit him. I wonder if pleurisy is a viral condition or not. Is there a possibility of transmitting this infection to other people. I would like to thank to all those who reply to my post.

Hello. Pleurisy can be caused by many factors. Pneumonia and other infections can cause pleurisy. Among these infections there can also be viruses. On the other hand, there are other, non-viral causes of pleurisy. Collagen vascular diseases can also cause pneumonia. Those are rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, sclerodermia, sarcoid disease, etc. Gastrointestinal diseases and trauma can also be causes. Uremia, sickle cell disease, asbestos, HIV, radiation therapy, clotting in lungs and other conditions can also be possible reasons. I don't know which one is present at your uncle. You should ask him before visit.
