We report a patient with acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 infection and irreversible lung destruction who underwent successful lung transplantation after 138 days of bridging with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation support. The case exemplifies that lung transplantation might be a possibility after very long-term Coronavirus disease 2019 care, even if the patient is initially unsuitable. Patient consent was acquired before writing the case report.
