Pediatric Congenital Pulmonary Airway Malformations

Congenital pulmonary airway malformation (CPAM) is a development that usually occurs in one lobe of the lung. Most of these developments are cysts formed from lung tissue that have a large amount of breathing channels and can be detected early on in fetal development.

With the increasing use of prenatal ultrasonography as well as improvement in technology and skill, most cases of congenital pulmonary airway malformations are prenatally diagnosed. Children with prenatally diagnosed lesions can have various symptoms.
