Abstract As the airways of SARS-CoV-2 infected patients contain a high viral load, bronchoscopy is associated with increased risk of patient to health care worker transmission due to aerosolised viral particles and contamination of surfaces during bronchoscopy. Bronchoscopy is not appropriate for diagnosing SARS-CoV-2 infection and, as an aerosol generating procedure involving a significant risk of transmission, has a very limited role in the management of SARS-CoV-2 infected patients including ...

INTRODUCTION During the last 40 years equipment has been improved with smaller instruments and sufficient size working channels. This has ensured that bronchoscopy offers therapeutic and interventional options. AREAS COVERED We provide a review of recent advances and clinical challenges in pediatric bronchoscopy. This includes single -use bronchoscopes, endobronchial ultrasound and cryoprobe. Bronchoscopy in persistent preschool wheezing and asthma is included. The indications for interventional...

A 1-year 5-month-old boy presents with a 1-day history of severe biphasic stridor. He had multiple previous admissions for recurrent lower respiratory tract infections. On his last admission, a month earlier, he was seen for noisy breathing, where laryngomalacia was suspected and confirmed on non-

BACKGROUND: Children seem relatively protected from serious severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) related disease, but little is known about children living in settings with high tuberculosis and HIV burden. This study reflects clinical data on South African children with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). METHODS: We collected clinical data of children aged younger than 13 years with laboratory confirmed SARS-CoV-2 presenting to Tygerberg Hospit...

INTRODUCTION: Broncho-esophageal fistula (BOF) is a rare complication of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB). TB-associated BOF presents either as acute respiratory failure, aspiration pneumonia or as a complication of surgical decompression of thoracic lymph nodes. METHODS: All children with TB- associated BOF were included. TB was diagnosed if MTB was cultured from respiratory secretions, Ziehl-Neelsen (ZN) smear was positive, GeneXpert MTB/RIF was positive or a chest radiograph revealed radiogra...

Most foreign bodies are located in the central airways and can be reached and removed with either a flexible or rigid bronchoscope or a combination of the two methods. The removal of more distal foreign bodies can present a significant challenge. We describe a case of an 11-year-old child, who aspirated a sewing needle that lodged in a distal subsegment of the medial segment of the right lower lobe. As a result, it was visible only with the 2.8 mm flexible bronchoscope (FOB). Mono-planar fluoros...
