Dear Editor,

The article by Sharma et al. regarding endobronchial biopsy in 120 patients in northern India is an attempt to understand the clinical profile, etiology and pathology of the patients who presented with endobronchial findings. The article concluded that most of the population was middle-aged males with non-small cell carcinoma being the most common diagnosis. However, there are few important points to ponder and understand in the study.
