Disseminated lung tumors are a large heterogenous group of disorders that may mimic more common interstitial lung disorders. Although CT scan feature may be characteristic and may suggest the diagnosis, histology is required for a definitive diagnosis. The need of lung tissue is now even more urgent for the possibility to identify targetable mutations/translocations/overexpressions of genes in the neoplastic cells and of the immune-checkpoint status. Transbronchial cryobiopsy may provide material for morphological and molecular investigations.
