Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM) is a hamartomatous lesion resulting from developmental anomaly of the foregut. It presents commonly in the neonatal period as respiratory distress. There have been reports of cases of infected CCAM in the past. Here, we report the case of a 2-month-old infant whose condition was diagnosed with CCAM type 3 infected with Chromobacterium violaceum. This is the first report of a case of CCAM infected with C. violaceum to our knowledge. The bacterium is known for its high mortality rate and resistance to penicillin and narrow spectrum cephalosporins.
