Conclusion: The EUS and FNA are good tools to confirm malignancy and rule out benign treatable conditions like TB for any patient with a pancreatic mass suspicious for carcinoma. PMID: 31588486 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) has been gradually introduced in the diagnosis of mediastinal tuberculous (TB) lymphadenitis. The purposes of this study were to evaluate the utility of polymerase chain reaction for Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB-PCR) using EBUS-TBNA rinse fluid and to explore the factors that influence the accuracy of EBUS-TBNA. METHODS: A retrospective study with prospective data collection was carried out with patients with unselected mediastinal lymphadenopathy who underwent EBUS-TBNA and a TB-PCR study from April 20...

Esophageal tuberculosis is rare in clinic. It is easy to be misdiagnosed as esophageal cancer because of lacking characteristic clinical manifestations and imaging feature.

Bronchoscopy is one of the most common diagnostic procedures in pulmonary practice. Data on the outcome of patients following a non-diagnostic bronchoscopy are sparse. Diagnostic yield depends on indication, the characteristics of patients, and the chest imaging. The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of patients with a non-diagnostic bronchoscopy and to compare patients who had a diagnostic with those that had a non-diagnostic bronchoscopy. Retrospective, single-center study of adult patients who underwent bronchoscopy with transbronchial biopsy (TBBX) and/or endobronchial biopsy (EBBX), endobronchial ultraso...

Nalini Gupta, Valliappan Muthu, Ritesh Agarwal, Sahajal DhooriaJournal of Cytology 2019 36(2):128-130 Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS)-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) has diagnostic accuracy and negative predictive value for the diagnosis of mediastinal tubercular lymphadenitis, especially when culture and cytological diagnosis is combined with high clinical suspicion. Both sarcoidosis and tuberculosis (TB) demonstrate granulomatous inflammation on cytology. Diagnosis of sarcoidosis in regions with a high burden of TB is challenging. We conducted a prospective study in 179 cases of suspected granulomatous pa...

Deepali JainJournal of Cytology 2019 36(1):59-60 Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) has recently emerged as a minimally invasive and safe modality for the evaluation of mediastinal lymphadenopathy, particularly in staging of lung carcinoma patients. In high tuberculosis endemic countries, EBUS-TBNA is useful in obtaining tissue diagnosis of granulomatous inflammation. Role of EBUS-TBNA in workup of extrapulmonary malignancies is not widely described. Herein, a brief overview of importance of EBUS-TBNA in investigation of extrapulmonary lesions/malignancies is presented.

ConclusionEUS ‐FNA showed great potential for differentiating mediastinal lesions by combining imaging manifestation and cytological examination. The elevated LDH value from cyst fluid chemical analysis could be used as an auxiliary indicator for diagnosing malignancy.

ConclusionThe Ultra shows promising sensitivity and should routinely be performed for both HIV+ and -patients at the first visit in the investigation of unexplained lymphadenopathy in a TB-endemic region. If the Ultra is negative, a core-needle biopsy is the most appropriate next investigation. In a TB-endemic region, FNAC should be reserved for patients>50 years who are HIV negative. There is no role for empiric TB treatment for patients with peripheral lymphadenopathy in the era of new TB diagnostic tests, and the application of these investigations with early biopsy for patients with negative TB tests will result in ...
