Abstract
Although congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation(CCAM) and
extralobar pulmonary sequestration(EPS) are different entities, they sometimes share
common morphologic features, raising a possibility of a morphogenetic link. We report
an autopsy case of a neonate who had features of both EPS and CCAM. An abnormal
left lung with three separate lobes was found in the left thoracic cavity after removal of
herniated abdominal viscera through the Bochdalek foramen. Two lobes without bronchial
connections were directly connected with the descending aorta, and showed typical
histologic features of CCAM. The lung tissue with normal bronchial connection and
'pulmonary artery supply showed identical features to these accessory lobes. Our case
provides an evidence that CCAM and EPS can occur in a single individual and in the
same side of the lung, and therefore raises a possibility that these two lesions could be
different expressions of the same disease.
