We present a case of bilateral intractable pneumothorax associated with a modified form of lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM), successfully treated with a previously reported surgical procedure, the total pleural covering (TPC) technique, under video-assisted thoracic surgery. The patient was a 28-year-old woman with bilateral pneumothorax secondary to LAM who had undergone thoracoscopic surgery in another hospital. We performed bilateral TPC modified with a preceding coverage of air leak points with polyglycolic acid sheets for reinforcement. Although a minor air leak after the surgery necessitated a mild pleurodesis on the right side, the bilateral pneumothorax was well controlled, and no recurrence has been observed for 9 months. We believe that TPC is a safe and reliable procedure for the management of intractable pneumothorax secondary to LAM. It also has the potential to reduce risk of excessive bleeding in lung transplantation.
