INTRODUCTION: Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS)-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) has a low incidence of hemomediastinum in patients with normal coagulation but can result in protracted bleeding in a patient with coagulopathy. We present the case of a patient with no prior history of coagulopathy in whom EBUS-guided TBNA resulted in hemomediastinum despite a careful hematologic workup.
