Severe fetal hydrops associated with cystic adenomatoid malformation of the lung inexplicably resolved spontaneously at 33-34 weeks' gestation. Following postnatal resection of the lesion which was of the macrocystic variety, the infant's respiratory status deteriorated, requiring 1 week of complicated support with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. The baby survived and was discharged.
