Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation of the foetal 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 we present a case of CCAM diagnosed during the second trimester of pregnancy and followed-up until delivery. Our 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.

Abstract

Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation of the foetal 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 we present a case of CCAM diagnosed during the second trimester of pregnancy and followed-up until delivery. Our 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.
