Abstract

The diagnosis of lung and mediastinal lesions can be performed through minimally invasive procedures, namely flexible bronchoscopy and endobronchial ultrasound. We report the case of a 65-years-old woman with a solid lesion in the upper and middle mediastinum. The diagnosis of small cell lung cancer was accomplished by transtracheal biopsy, an unconventional but feasible method.
