article description
In a geographical area with high prevalence of calcific granulomatous inflammation, calcified lymph nodes may affect the diagnostic adequacy of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA). The objective of this study was to describe the diagnostic performance of EBUS-TBNA in a region endemic of histoplasmosis related granulomatous inflammation.
