The article describes a case of successful treatment of a child not elder than 1 year old with a gangrene in the right upper lobe of the lung against the background of its cystic adenomatoid malformation. The disease manifested as pneumonia. The diagnosis was confirmed following multispiral computed tomography. The first stage of surgery was drainage of the pleural cavity. Thoracotomy and upper lobe lobectomy were done after a child’s condition had stabilized. Gangrene in the cystic and adenomatoid piece of the lobe was confirmed macroscopically and histologically.
