Pleural thickening is the term used to describe the appearance of widespread scarring along the lining (called the pleura) of the lungs. When pleural scarring is limited to one location it is referred to as pleural plaque. While pleural thickening can be relatively harmless in some cases, it can in some cases be a debilitating disease.The main symptom of Pleural thickening is shortness of breath.
