INTRODUCTION: Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is a minimally invasive procedure that provides real time visualization and sampling of lymph nodes adjacent to the trachea and large bronchi. EBUS-TBNA has an overall complication rate of 1.4% (most commonly from pneumothorax, bleeding requiring intervention, sustained hypoxia, or airway injury).1 To our knowledge, no case of contralateral pneumothorax has been reported with EBUS-TBNA. Here we describe a case of contralateral pneumothorax as an unexpected complication of endobronchial ultrasound.
