A 31 case series of pleuropneumonia is presented, in a 7 year period. All patients were treated following same standards consisting of a pleural catheter insertion. Results support conservative treatment: short hospitalization and absence of psychological or physical traumas was achieved. Follow up is very good for all patients and none had invalidating consequences.
