214 Possible Causes for Pulmonary Lymphangioleiomyomatosis

  • Lymphangioleiomyomatosis

    Pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is an uncommon disease reported to occur exclusively in women. We describe a phenotypically normal man with pulmonary LAM.[doi.org] Exacerbation of pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis by exogenous estrogens.[scielo.br] Abstract Pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a destructive lung disease characterized by a diffuse hamartomatous proliferation of smooth muscle cells (LAM cells) in[doi.org]

  • Tuberous Sclerosis

  • Cystic Lung Disease

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: High-resolution CT scans in 92 patients with chronic cystic lung diseases (18 with pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis, 18 with pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess the frequency of undiagnosed cystic lung lesions suggestive of pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) in patients who received[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONCLUSION: We conclude that cystic lung disease in BHD syndrome varies widely in severity, mimics pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis, and may be worsened by smoking.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) and angiomyolipoma are two different, but related rare diseases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] lymphangioleiomyomatosis, clear cell sugar tumors of pancreas, lung and uterus and cardiac rhabdomyoma More than 50% occur in patients without tuberous sclerosis About 80%[pathologyoutlines.com] To the best of our knowledge, pulmonary LAM and pulmonary angiomyolipoma have not previously been observed in the same patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Atelectasis

    Atelectasis is collapse of lung tissue with loss of volume. Patients may have dyspnea or respiratory failure if atelectasis is extensive. They may also develop pneumonia. Atelectasis is usually asymptomatic, but hypoxemia and pleuritic chest pain may be present in certain cases. Diagnosis is by chest x-ray. Treatment[…][merckmanuals.com]
