Lungs from donors with previous COVID-19 could become a precious resource if proved safe. So far, only 3 successful lung transplantations from donors with previous mild COVID-19 have been reported. We describe a successful bilateral sequential lung transplantation from a donor who, 10 months before, had developed severe COVID-19 acute respiratory distress syndrome. No donor-derived viral transmission occurred, and 12 months after transplantation, the recipient’s lung function is normal. In the presence of normal results of bronchoalveolar lavage and adequate functional and morphologic parameters, even a history of severe COVID-19 acute respiratory distress syndrome might not be considered a contraindication to lung donation.
