Abstract The use of prenatal ultrasonography has improve the detection of fetal abnormalities, which affects the perception about the natural history and evolution of them, changing the management of the fetus and neonate. Today, it is possible to perform an early prenatal diagnosis, and be treated even intrauterine with high rates of success. Such is the case of Congenital Cystic Adenomatoid Malformation (CCAM), characterized by abnormal proliferation and dilatation of the terminal structures of the airway, generating multiple cysts of diferent sizes and locations. The CCAM can be asymptomatic until adulthood, but sometimes it is presented as an adverse perinatal outcome, manifested with ascites, hydrothorax, hydrops and hypoplasia of the affected lung. We report a case of a pregnant women, 32-year-old, diagnosed on the 18 week pregnancy by ultrasound Type 3 Congenital Cystic Adenomatoid Malformation disease. Treated with an intrauterine intervention percutaneous fetal sclerotherapy successfully.
