The left adrenal gland (LAG) is a common metastatic site in patients with non–small-cell lung cancer. In practice, staging mainly relies on radiologic studies and endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA). Recently, a new technique using convex probe–endobronchial ultrasound (CP-EBUS) scope through the esophagus (EUS-B) has been introduced. A complete mediastinal staging and a reach for upper-abdominal structures in a single session naturally attract attention. However, scientific data are not sufficient to clearly judge the role of this technique in the cytological diagnosis of left adrenal lesions. Therefore, we present cases in which our patients have undergone EUS-B for LAG lesions to increase the data in the literature with regard to accessibility, diagnostic performance, and rate of complications.
