The multiple adherences of the pleura and peritoneum are indicative of inflammation of several serosal surfaces (polyserositis). In this case, the resistance and white color of adhesions indicate a chronic course (fibrous polyserositis). This lesion is usually related with Haemophilus parasuis infection, but other etiologies could be Streptococcus suis or Mycoplasma hyorhinis.
