We present two rare cases of children who presented with progressive exertional breathlessness and dry cough. They also had history of bluish discoloration of mucous membranes, hands and feet on exertion. Both were diagnosed to have pulmonary alveolar proteinosis after a high-resolution computed tomography and bronchoalveolar lavage. They were subjected to bilateral whole lung lavage (WLL) as a salvage therapy. Bilateral WLL was performed in a single sitting with the help of a modified endotracheal tube. The anesthetic technique included a modified cuffed endotracheal tube for accomplishing WLL. After the procedure, both children improved clinically and functionally.
