Bronchoscopy is an aerosol-generating procedure and involves a high risk of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 to health care workers . There are very few indications for performing bronchoscopy in a patient with confirmed COVID-19 . These include atelectasis, foreign body aspiration, and suspected superinfection in immunocompromised patients . Proper use of standard personal protective equipment is mandatory to reduce the risk of transmission to health care workers . In this article, we describe a case of acute lung collapse in a 16-year-old boy with cerebral palsy who was infected with COVID-19 . This patient responded to therapeutic bronchoscopy and had complete resolution of lung collapse within 24 hours of the procedure.
