Background: Lung pathology is the leading cause of death in developed countries and is increasing at alarming rates in developing countries. Flexible fiberoptic bronchoscope revolutionized respiratory cytology as techniques such as bronchial brushing (BB), bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL), and bronchial biopsy became more easy, accessible, and popular. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) has proved to be the most helpful method for the diagnosis of lung tumors.The present study was conducted to compare Bronchoalveolar Lavage and Transbronchial Lung Biopsy in Various Lung Pathologies.
