The pleurae are two thin, diaphanous, perspirable membranes, which line each side of the chest, and are reflected thence upon each lung. Like all serous membranes- to which class they belong-each represents a sac without aperture. From the junction of the pleura of each side the mediastina are formed. That portion of the pleura which lines the parietes of the chest is called Pleura Costa'lis; the portion that covers the lungs. Pleura Pulmona'lis. The arteries of the pleurae are from the intercostals, internal mammaries, phrenic, inferior thyroid, &c. The veins correspond with the arteries. They are, also, supplied with lymphatics, but nerves are not traceable in them. Pleura is also used for Cavity of the Pleura, Saccus Pleurae.
