Özet

Background/aim: Mediastinal lymphadenopathy is common in extrathoracic malignancies and should not always be considered a metastatic lesion. The purpose of this study is to determine the diagnostic value of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle biopsy (EBUS-TBNA) in patients with extrathoracic malignancies.
