Endoscopic ultrasound using convex endobronchial ultrasound probe (EUS-B) is an evolving diagnostic technique. We present a case of successful EUS-B biopsy of pleural metastasis in a patient with lung adenocarcinoma. This was an accurate, uncomplicated procedure and demonstrates the feasibility of EUS-B for pleural lesions.
