Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

We give the first account of failure of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation therapy secondary to congenital cystic malformation of the lung (CCAM) type 0.

DESIGN:

Case report.

SETTING:

Pediatric intensive care unit.

PATIENT:

A female neonate, appropriate for gestational age, with respiratory failure immediately after delivery.

INTERVENTIONS:

: Cardiopulmonary support with venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.

RESULTS:

There was no improvement of pulmonary function, and the patient died. CCAM type 0 was diagnosed postmortem.

CONCLUSIONS:

CCAM type 0 should be considered as a rare differential diagnosis of irreversible lung pathologies leading to failure of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation therapy for neonatal respiratory failure.
