Congenital pulmonary airway malformations (CPAMs) are considered part of a spectrum of bronchopulmonary foregut malformations. Diagnosis is usually made during the antenatal or neonatal period, and is rarely diagnosed in adults. The spectrum of clinical presentations varies from asymptomatic cases to recurrent respiratory tract infections or respiratory insufficiency in adulthood. Here, we report the case of an adult female who presented with a history of recurrent respiratory tract infections since childhood. Radiological findings were in favor of bilateral CPAM. Bilateral CPAM in an adult patient is extremely rare, and it is mostly managed as bronchiectasis.
