Chemical pleurodesis is an effective treatment for recurrent malignant pleural effusion. Though many drugs and chemical agents have been approved, Iodo-povodine is a topical antiseptic and has shown to be safe, painless and effective agent for pleurodesis. Here we present a case of recurrent pleural effusion due to metastatic adenocarcinoma who had been repeatedly aspirated which increased her morbidity because of repeated hospitalisation .She was treated effectively with povidone iodine pleurodesis, following which ,even after fourth month follow up there was no further pleural collection.
