Abstract

A 8-year-old male with Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome was admitted to our hospital because of left hilar swelling on a chest roentgeonogram. Bronchofiberscopy and transbronchial aspiration cytology (TBAC) was performed under general anesthesia with a laryngeal mask. The specimen obtained by TBAC was immediately stained and diagnosed as malignant lymphoma. One month later, thoracotomy was performed in order to get more detail diagnosis, which is necessary to determine the regimen of chemotherapy, and the nodal specimen were diagnosed as Hodgkin's disease. The ABVD therapy was performed which induced the complete remission. The laryngeal mask is a useful device for bronchofiberscopy in children.
