Figure 2: Results of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration of the studied patients. *Adequate (evaluable) lymphocytic population seen on the endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration cytology slides. Cytology specimens will be considered inadequate if it contains blood or endobronchial cells with only a few lymphocytes. **Diagnostic sample if positive for “cells of interest” either malignant cells, caseating, or non-caseating granuloma. ***Nondiagnostic if it showed only normal or reactive lymphocytes without specific diagnosis
