Özet

Background: Even if the clinical and radiological findings indicate sarcoidosis, diagnosis can be established by showing histopathologically the sarcoid granulomas in the tissue. Mediastinoscopy is a surgical procedure that is commonly used to obtain histological specimens to examine for mediastinal lymph node involvement in sarcoidosis.
