Endobronchial ultrasound-transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is recommended for the diagnosis of malign and benign mediastinal lymphadenopathies and lesions adjacent to the central airways. However the diagnostic yield of EBUS-TBNA in diagnosis of lymphoma is weak. Additionally, the challenge of cathcing Reed-Sternberg cells in such a small sample size lowers the sensitivitiy of EBUS-TBNA for diagnosis of Hodgkin lymphoma. EBUS-TBNA can be performed with rigid bronchoscopy. A 64 years old male patient with multiple abdominal and mediastinal lymphadenopathies with coinciding hamartoma and Hodgkin lymphoma is reported for presenting diagnostic and therapeutic interventional methods performed for this unique coincidance.
