Abstract

Background/aim: Enlarged mediastinal lymph nodes can result from serious etiologies including granulomatous disease, neoplasia, etc., and a rare condition called anthracosis. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of risk factors and the uptake values within the anthracotic lymph nodes.
