With smaller miniaturized fiber bronchoscopy available and thanks to continuous research and work a number of pediatric pneumology units have carried out, a revolution in the pediatric fiber bronchoscopy field has taken place in our country in the last few years.

However, and despite having a variety of uses, this technique is still strongly and almost exclusively related to foreign body removal. This paper aims to widen the scope of pediatric fiber bronchoscopy indications, by reviewing and updating all the other diagnostic and therapeutic applications this safe and useful tool has.

Keywords: Patient safety. Diagnostic techniques and procedures. Bronchoscopy.
