Effusion most likey due to pancreatitis vs synpneumonic effusion with sepsis
There is Right lung consolidation with b/l pleural effusion .....most common cause of b/l effusion is CHF...but here no history is given... She needs a thorough evaluation... Do serum Procalcitonin (rule out Sepsis) Ascitic and pleural diagnostic tap... No history of fever is given and abdominal diatension is since 1 month....do 2d Echo and rule out HF
Clinical and laboratory picture can be corelated with viral hemmhoragic fever like Dengue, Leptospirosis.. Here reactive effusion and ascites is quite common with indirect hyperbilirubinemia and mild transaminitis... Only odd finding is raised WBC. Rule out other source of infection also...
Most likely it's case of chronic hepatitis c pancreatitis do viral hepatitis profile, crp, kft , esr, CT abd .....pl.effusion is secondary to hepatocellular jaundice or pancreatitis.
