Abstract: A patient with congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation of the lung (CCAM) is presented who showed severe respiratory deterioration in the neonatal period caused by hyperinflation of the cystic component and compression of the contralateral lung. Transthoracic drainage of the cyst was performed to avoid preoperative artificial ventilation. On aspiration, air and liquid was removed from the cyst. After stabilization, surgical intervention was performed within 24 hours. Postoperative recovery was uneventful, and the child was discharged at day 13.
