Independent lung ventilation is a decades-old, but infrequently used technique for physiological separation in critically-ill patients with asymmetric lung disease. Here we present a case report of bilateral necrotizing pneumonia complicated by acute respiratory distress syndrome and bronchopleural fistula, which was successfully managed with independent lung ventilation. The use of independent lung ventilation allowed for adequate oxygenation with use of high positive end expiratory pressure in the “good lung” while simultaneously allowing for closure of the bronchopulmonary fistula in the contralateral lung by maintaining relatively low airway pressures.
