Abstract Flexible fibreoptic bronchoscope has been employed in the examination of the nasopharynx, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchus and intrathoracic oesophagus under local anaesthesia. It is used either for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. A total of 1690 procedures have been performed with no complication. The indications and findings in these procedures are listed. The advantages and limitations of the use of flexible fibreoptic bronchoscope as a ‘panendoscope examination’ instrument are discussed.
