    Nine cases of congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation of the lung are described. One was stillborn: two presented in the newborn period (one of them surviving after a lobectomy), and the remaining six were older children all of whom survived after lobectomy. There have been only three cases previously reported in children outside the newborn period. The pathological, clinical, and radiological features are discussed and compared with previously reported cases.
