LUNG - Bronchopneumonia and pleurisy

The outer surface of the lung shows fine, rather fibrinous, adhesions, indicative of recent inflammation; the upper lobe shows a confluent bronchopneumonia apparent on the left-hand half of the specimen; the lower lobe shows confluent consolidation, involving most of the lobe; this is greyish in colour and, therefore, probably older than the changes in the upper lobe.
