Abstract

Since the introduction of bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) by Reynolds, et al. in 1974, direct examination of cells from interest sites in the lung has generated great progress in our understanding of pulmonary diseases. In the present study, BAL and the clinical usefulness of BAL in diagnosing and treating pulmonary diseases were described. In addition, recent research using BAL to elucidate the fundamental mechanism of pulmonary granulomatous disorders was also described.
