CONGENITAL CYSTIC ADENOMATOID malformation (CCAM) of the lung is a rare, multicystic lesion with embryonic origins. Approximately 421 cases have been documented since the lesion was first described in 1949.1 Usually, only one lobe is affected, most often the lower lobe.2 CCAM represents 25 percent of all congenital lung lesions.3 There is no race predominance, nor is there a left- or right-side trend.4 Males may be at greater risk than females for CCAM development.5
