Abstract  

Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation of the fetal lung (CCAMs) are rare malformations resulting from bronchial overgrowth with almost complete suppression of the alveolar development. Due to rarity of CCAMs, there is still a lack of evidence on the optimal management of this condition. Here the authors present a case of CCAM diagnosed during the second trimester of pregnancy and followed-up until delivery. This report shows that, in case of non-severe CCAMs and uncomplicated pregnancies, an optimal management of the patient can lead to spontaneous delivery of a healthy baby.

Key words:  Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation of the fetal lung (CCAMs)      Diagnosis      Management
