Each lung is surrounded by a pleural sac that consists of two serous membranes called the pleurae.

The outer layer of the pleural sac, the parietal layer, is served by the systemic circulation; the inner, visceral layer, by the bronchial circulation.

The right and left pleural sacs are distinct from each other, and come into immediate contact for just a short distance behind the upper half of the body of sternum; they are separated only by a narrow margin behind the oesophagus in mid thoracic region.
