Novel use of the endobronchial ultrasound through esophagus (EUS-B): Diagnosis of thyroid lesions
There is paucity in literature on the use of endobronchial ultrasound through esophagus (EUS-B) for the diagnosing thyroid gland lesions. We report the first case of colloid goiter diagnosed using EUS-B- FNA technique. A 77-year-old man presented with ophthalmic symptoms and an incidental finding of lung nodule on chest x-ray. The computed tomography of thorax revealed a left upper lobe nodule and an oval shaped left paratracheal lesion near left pole of thyroid gland. EUS-B- FNAC was performed which lead to the diagnosis of colloid goiter.
