A biopsy specimen of the parietal pleural Tracheobronchial secretions are provided by: 1. Expectorated sputum 2. Transtracheal aspiration 3. Flexible bronchoscopy Lung biopsy specimens can be obtained by: 1. Flexible bronchoscopy 2. Percutaneous needle aspiration or biopsy 3. Video-assisted thoracic surgery 4. Open surgical procedure 50 n Principles of Pulmonary Medicine surface (the tissue layer lining the pleural space) also may be obtained either blindly, with a special needle passed through the chest wall, or under direct visualization using a thoracoscope.

This contrast allows the examiner to detect areas with something other than air-containing lung beneath the chest wall, such as fluid in the pleural space (pleural effusion) or airless (consolidated) lung, each of which sounds dull to percussion. At the other extreme, air in the pleural space (pneumothorax) or a hyperinflated lung (as in emphysema) may produce a hyperresonant or more “hollow” sound, approaching what the examiner hears when percussing over a hollow viscus such as the stomach.

Identification of mycobacteria, the causative agent for tuberculosis, requires special staining and culturing techniques. Mycobacteria are stained by agents such as carbolfuchsin or auramine-rhodamine, and the organisms are almost unique in their ability to retain the stain after acid is added. Hence, the expression acid-fast bacilli is used commonly when referring to mycobacteria. Frequently used staining methods are the Ziehl-Neelsen stain or a modification called the Kinyoun stain. A more sensitive and faster way to detect mycobacteria involves use of a fluorescent dye such as auraminerhodamine.
