Abstract

This is a case of a married couple with a cluster of empyema. Clusters are rarely seen, but have previously been described in children. Reasons for clustering of empyemas include close relationship between patients, increased susceptibility in patients, increased virulence of the bacteria, co-morbidity and age. Drainage and relevant antibiotic treatment remain key therapies.
