Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) is an advance endoscopic procedure has the capability to imaging the mediastinam through the esophagus for localization and staging of lung cancer, detection of mediastinal lymph nodes, and EUS guided fine needle aspiration (FNA) from mediastinal lesions. The aim of this study is to evaluate the role of EUS and EUS guided fine needle aspiration (FNA) in the localization and histological confirmation of mediastinal lesion.Patients and methods: A retrospective analysis was performed on 315 (208 men, 107 women) patients of mediastinal lesions. EUS examination was performed with a linear-array echoendoscope (FG34UX, Pentax/Hitachi) at the gastroenterology and hepatology teaching hospital-Baghdad by single endosonographer (R.A.Z).
