It is characterized by a multicystic mass of pulmonary tissue with an abnormal proliferation of the bronchial structure. Most patient present with recurrent fever, cough and respiratory distress. It can very well misdiagnosed as massive pneumothorax and may land up in Intercostal drainage tube (ICD) insertion.
