HERNANDEZ-SOLIS, Alejandro; NAVARRO-REYNOSO, Francisco P.  e  CICERO-SABIDO, Raúl. Benign cystic adenomatoid malformation: A case report and literature review. Rev. med. Hosp. Gen. Méx. [online]. 2020, vol.83, n.3, pp.127-130.  Epub 06-Set-2021. ISSN 2524-177X.

Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM) is a benign lung lesion whose incidence is low. The disease can manifest itself right after birth. In some cases, CCAM manifests itself during adolescence or adulthood. This report is about an adolescent patient presented with symptoms of chronic suppurative lung disease, who underwent right lower lobectomy, remaining asymptomatic. These cases are always rectified by means of surgery and patients generally have a good recovery. We have seen the association of this malformation with alterations in other apparatuses and systems.
