Pagination or Media Count:
Endobronchial ultrasound-transbronchialneedle aspiration EBUS-TBNA permits pathological evaluation of mediastinal lymphadenopathy through a minimally-invasive ultrasonographic avenue. While typical post-procedural bleeding is minimal, hemomediastinum has rarely been seen following EBUS-TBNA. This case highlights a potentially fatal complication that can be associated with EBUS-TBNA.
