Consolidation of the left lung with moderate patchy enhancement. Consolidation is also noted in the perihilar right lung. Moderate left-sided pleural effusion. Findings are suggestive of lobar pneumonia.
Hepatisation is a stage of lobar pneumonic consolidation. In the early stage, there is hemorrhagic fluid within the alveoli which gets organized, resulting in a pathological appearance called "red hepatisation". Later on, fibrosis occurs in the organized exudate leading to an appearance called "gray hepatisation".
