lesions are relatively rare surgical conditions of the fetus
and the newborn. There are several types (CCAM, sequestrations,
bronchogenic cysts), which can all be small and insignificant,
or become so large that they compress other organs in the chest.
They can be found by accident in an otherwise healthy child (on
a routine chest X-ray), but are now more and more often detected
by ultrasound before birth.
