Congenital pulmonary airway malformation (CPAM) is the most common congenital lesion of the lung. A 21-year-old man presented with complaints of frequent cough and sputum. Computed tomography of the chest revealed a 7 x 5-cm lesion in the upper lobe of the left lung. Because the cyst originated in the left upper lobe bronchus and was compressing the surrounding parenchyma, a left upper lobectomy was performed. The pathology report indicated adenocarcinoma arising from congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation.
