PURPOSE: Fiberoptic bronchoscopy (FOB) has been used for many years in evaluation of solitary pulmonary nodules and peripheral lung masses. However, few studies have addressed the yield of transbronchial biopsy (TBB) and Endobronchial biopsy (EBB) in pathologic diagnosis of lung cancer. The goal of this study is to evaluate the diagnostic yield of TBB and EBB in evaluating solitary lung masses.
