Care and Treatment of Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM)
What Is LAM?
Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare lung disease found almost entirely in women. LAM develops when an unusual type of muscle cell invades your lung tissue. Eventually, these cells form bundles that grow and obstruct your airways, blood vessels, and lymph vessels.
This group meets every other month. Approximately 10-15 LAM patients and their families attend meetings, which usually include a guest speaker on topics of interest, as well as time to visit and ask questions.
