Figure 2. Three serial frontal chest radiographs from surviving caregiver B2 with primary pneumonic plague obtained on illness days 2, 3, and 18 showing bilateral lower lung zone predominant airspace disease associated with bilateral (right > left) pleural effusions. The radiographs have artifacts related to hand-dipping of the films, which account for multiple densities that move between images and the areas of apparent lucency.
