PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate factors predicting the diagnostic yield of flexible bronchoscopy without guidance in peripheral lung lesions invisible endoscopically.

METHODS: The medical records of 204 patients who had underwent flexible bronchoscopy for the evaluation of peripheral lesions without endobronchial lesions were reviewed retrospectively. The analyzed variables included the etiology of lesion, lesion size, distance from pleura, and the presence of bronchus sign. We performed a multivariate analysis of the predictive factors of the diagnosis using the logistic regression technique.
