Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformations (CCAM) are rare developmental anomalies of the lung characterized by cysts of varying sizes and/or adenomatoid proliferation. Type I CCAM, the most frequent subtype, is associated with an increased incidence of malignant transformation, principally bronchioloalveolar carcinoma, with a reported incidence of around 1%. We report the first case of mucoepidermoid carcinoma arising in a type 1 CCAM.
