Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PAP) is a rare syndrome in which phospholipoproteinaceous matter accumulates in the alveoli leading to compromised gas exchange. Whole-lung lavage is considered the gold standard for severe autoimmune PAP and offers favorable long-term outcomes. In this case report, we describe the perioperative management and procedural specifics of a patient undergoing WLL for PAP in which an anesthesiologist serves as the proceduralist and a separate anesthesiologist provides anesthesia care for the patient.
