Seems like right lower lobe lung abscess which has ruptured causing right pyopneumothorax.... Drained material should be sent for gram staining ,culture for pyogenic organisms besides culture for AFB. In the meantime patient should be treated with broad spectrum antibiotics besides anaerobic coverage..
Beside Pneumothorax, patient having Pneumonia (cap , if h/o previous prolonged hospitalisation and Antibiotics, Drug Resistance should be considered). CBC , Sputum Exam. GM Stain , fungal stain , C.S , recommended. Optimised AB therapy to avoid drug resistance and evidence based therapy if possible.
