Cystic lung disease is divided into congenital and acquired lesions. Congenital cystic lung disease includes several malformations with distinct anatomical and histological features. There is significant overlap between these lesions to suggest a common pathologic mechanism for their occurrence. Congenital cystic lung lesions include cystic adenomatoid malformations, pulmonary sequestrations, congenital lobar emphysema, and peripheral bronchogenic cysts. These lesions are commonly diagnosed prenatally with high accuracy. Prenatal imaging has allowed us to better understand their natural history and devise strategies for prenatal and postnatal management. Some lesions warrant resection (even prenatally), whereas others can be managed expectantly.
