A 40 yr old man has the recent onset of rt-sided chest pain, difficulty breathing and fever. On auscultation he has crackles, decreased respiratory sounds, and evidence of a rt sided pleural effusion. which of the following best describes the expected type of inflammatory process involving the lung?

A) fibroblasts, collagen deposition, replacement of intrinsic tissue
B) macrophages, lymphocytes, increased concentrations of immunoglobulins
C) mast cells, histamine, smooth muscle contraction
D) neutrophils, increased vascular permeability, edema
E) vascular budding, fibroblasts, edema, proteoglycans

I was wondering if you guys can help match the answer choices to the disease.
C--> asthma
D-->pleural effusion
