Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM) of the lung is an uncommon anomaly of fetal development of terminal respiratory structures. Patients with CCAM may present either in the newborn with progressive respiratory distress, or in older children with recurrent pulmonary infections. Lung abscess is an extremely rare presentation. Herein we report an 8-year-old girl with type 1 CCAM who presented as lung abscess.
