Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is an established method for obtaining samples from mediastinal or hilar lymph nodes and mass lesions. This technique has greatly improved the diagnostic performance in lung cancer. However, its performance is limited in granulomatous and lymphoproliferative diseases. EBUS miniforceps biopsy (MFB) is a recently developed technique for performing biopsies of mediastinal lesions under continuous endobronchial ultrasound guidance. In this article, we describe a case of malignant lymphoma in a patient with successful chemotherapy treatment. The present case suggests that EBUS-MFB is an effective diagnostic tool.
