    Diaphragmatic pleurisy, also known as pleuritis, is an inflammation of the tissues that line the lung and the interior of the chest cavity, specifically affecting the diaphragmatic portion. This condition can cause severe chest pain and difficulty in breathing, as the inflamed tissues may rub against each other during breathing. It's often a symptom of underlying conditions such as bacterial or viral infections, autoimmune diseases, or injuries to the chest.
