In this study, 74 percent of the infants -- those who developed a condition called bronchopulmonary dysplasia -- still needed supplemental oxygen at the estimated gestational age of 36 weeks, and a third of them were sent home with supplemental oxygen that continued for another 2-3 months.
Therefore, a color flow Doppler ultrasound showing a systemic arterial blood supply to the mass confirms the diagnosis of bronchopulmonary sequestration.
Like CCAMs, a fetal bronchopulmonary sequestration can also cause fetal hydrops, either from the mass effect or from a tension hydrothorax that results from fluid or lymph secretion from the bronchopulmonary sequestration.
However, a bronchopulmonary sequestration always has a systemic arterial blood supply from the aorta while a Type III congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation does not.
Predominant diagnoses include asthma and drug reactions, but patients are also seen in evaluation for allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, eczema and other diagnoses.
Recently, we have described a hybrid lesion, which consists of both congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation and bronchopulmonary sequestration lesions.
A fetal lung lesion consisting of bronchogenic cyst, bronchopulmonary sequestration, and congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation: the missing link?
Cystic lung lesions with systemic arterial blood supply: A hybrid of congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation and bronchopulmonary sequestration.
Congenital Cystic Adenomatoid Malformation (CCAM) can be confused with a bronchopulmonary sequestration (BPS), which may also present as a solid mass.
