Özet

Background: Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is a diagnostic method for tuberculosis (TB). This study was conducted to determine the efficiency of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing for detecting TB lymphadenitis in samples obtained by EBUS-TBNA.
