The case report is being done to increase the knowledge of Congenital Cystic Adenomatoid Malformation (CCAM) along with to better understand about the disease and its management & raise awareness. A female infant (aged 9 months and birth weight 2500 gm) was selected as participant. After physical examination, the state of the participant was good (fever:37.6ºC, heart rate: 120/min, respiratory rate: 40/min). Holding a good health certificate, a cystic image was identified at pulmonary artery in chest X-ray report. The histology findings were consistent with CPAM Type I. CPAM surgery, generally favorable, results in low postoperative morbidity and mortality. CPAM is a rare developmental malformation of lung that causes pulmonary compression and hypoplasia leading to respiratory distress but the postnatal management of asymptomatic CPAM remains controversial.
