Abstract

Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration is a minimally invasive method for diagnosing paratracheal and peribronchial lesions, with a low rate of complications. However, as the procedure has gained widespread acceptance, major complications have occasionally been reported. In this report, we describe a case of hemothorax after endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration in a patient with a right upper lobe mass.
