Description

Congenital pulmonary airway malformation (CPAM), previously known as congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM), is an inborn abnormality of the lower respiratory system. Most often diagnosed in the perinatal period, these anomalies usually present with tachypnea, cyanosis, and respiratory distress. However, rare cases are asymptomatic and undiagnosed until adulthood.
