Lesions associated with vasculary structures may be diagnosed when they are in field of view during endobronchial ultrasonography (EBUS). A 71 years old man admitted with breathlessness. The pulmonary mass lesion had not been diagnosed using standard fiberoptic bronchoscopy. Convex probe EBUS was performed in order to have diagnosis and staging. In the procedure, a formation attached to the arterial wall and moving along lumen at the central right branch of pulmonary artery was detected. The patient was diagnosed as lung adenocarcinoma by trans thoracic needle biopsy. Bilateral pulmonary arterial embolism was confirmed in ventilation and perfusion scintigraphy. Coincidental diagnosis, especially associated with vasculary structures, may be met during EBUS procedure. It is important to assess pulmonary arterial branching carefully in lung cancer patients.
