Congenital cystic lung lesions are a rare but clinically significant group of anomalies, including con- genital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM), pulmo- nary sequestration, congenital lobar emphysema (CLE) and bronchogenic cysts. Despite the knowledge of these lesions increasing in the last years, some aspects are still debated and controversial. The diagnosis is certainly one aspect which underwent many changes in the last 15 years due to the improvement of antenatal scan and the intro- duction of 3-D reconstruction techniques. As it is known, a prompt diagnosis has an essential role in the management of these children. The new imaging studies as 3D Volume rendering system are the focus of this paper. We describe our preliminary experience in a case of hybrid lung lesion, which we approached by thoracoscopy after a preopera- tive study with 3D VR reconstruction. Our final balance is absolutely positive.
