A 59-year-old woman underwent chest tube placement, repeated pleurodesis, and pleuroperitoneal shunt implantation for unsuccessful treatment of a large refractory hepatic hydrothorax. Two days after placement of a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt for treatment of variceal hemorrhage, her pleural effusion resolved. At 10 months' follow-up, only minimal fluid remains.
