What causes pleural effusion for FSGS patients?

Pleural effusion means there are excess fluid building up in the lung. And Nephrotic Syndrome is common cause of pleural effusion. The main reason of edema is associated with the massive proteinuria. Because too much protein splits, the plasma colloid osmotic pressure reduces so that the fluid flows into the tissue space. Besides, when kidney function impairs, it can not balance the fluid in the body so as to cause edema. When the fluid accumulate in the lung, pleural effusion occurs.
