The aim of this study is to assess the findings of mediastinal/hilar LN sampling by EBUS-TBNA in patients with non-sarcoidosis interstitial lung disease ( ILD) who demonstrate LN enlargement on chest imaging. Patients with non-sarcoidosis ILD referred for bronchoscopy will undergo LN sampling by EBUS-TBNA. Cytology results will be recorded along with clinico-radiologic features, BAL findings, histology and final ILD diagnosis.
