Case 1: A 34-year-old female had breast surgery followed by chemotherapy in 2006. She had local axillary recurrence after 2 year after surgery, for which he received treatment. She had bone lytic lesion in 2011 for which she received radiotherapy and was kept on hormonal therapy. She was doing well. A positron emission tomography scan in 206 showed posterior pericardial lesion measuring 3.2 cm × 1.6 cm. An endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS FNA) was done from pericardial lesion which was positive for malignancy. Case 2: A 52-year-old male with hepatitis B virus-related compensated liver cirrhosis (Child–Pugh–Turcotte - 6, model for end-stage liver disease - 14) with multicenter hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) status posttransarterial chemoembolization, planned for living donor liver transplantation after complete workup. He had an isolated 9.5 mm paracaval lymph node at large axis on recent dynamic computed tomography and was referred for EUS FNA as a routine protocol for HCC. We did EUS-FNA with 25-gauge needle transaortic and transvenous, one pass was taken from the lymph node which was positive for malignancy, and LT was deferred.
