ABSTRACT

Endobronchial ultrasound-guided miniforceps biopsy (EBUS-MFB) has been receiving attention as a novel biopsy method. A 42-year-old man was referred to our hospital for histological diagnosis of bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy. We performed EBUS-transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) followed by EBUS-MFB for an enlarged #11s lymph node. Polynodular noncaseating granulomas were detected on only the specimens obtained with EBUS-MFB; we therefore diagnosed the enlarged hilar lymph node as sarcoidosis. EBUS-MFB is useful for the diagnosis of sarcoidosis.
