Fig15: A 3-year-old boy with dyspnoea. Chest CT image shows displacement of the trachea (open arrow) and oesophagus (solid arrow) to the right due to a large mass (asterisk) with accompanying pleural effusion. Histopathology: embryonal RMS

Mentions: There is an ongoing debate and controversy whether congenital cystic anomalies predispose children to intralesional development of RMS [58–62]. It has been reported that pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB) has been mistaken for or classified as RMS arising in congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM) on a number of occasions [63]. Despite the fact that the exact incidence in CCAM is unknown, it has prompted paediatric surgeons to resect even small pulmonary cystic lesions (Fig. 15) [64, 65].Fig. 15
