Lymphangioleiomyomatosis review

The condition may be sporadic or associated with the tuberous sclerosis complex.

When to think of it: woman of child bearing age with emphysema, pneumothorax, chylothorax or progressive dyspnea.

How to diagnose it: You can start with HRCT but by the time you’re in that deep you’ll want to get some help from a pulmonologist.

I’ve previously linked to another review here.
