The mechanism of hydrothorax formation is thought to originate with diaphragmatic defects that allow the transfer of ascites developing from the hepatic surface to pass directly into the pleural space. The negative intrathoracic pressure of the thorax draws ascitic fluid into the pleural space. Fluid analysis will show similar characteristics to abdominal ascites.
