How Long does Pleurisy Last?

The duration of pleurisy is dependent on the cause. If the pleurisy is a complication of an infection, it usually lasts until the antibiotics cure the infection. Pleurisy caused by pleurodynia can last for several days. If cancer is the cause, pleurisy can last much longer.
