Summary This groundbreaking reference describes the pathogenesis and therapy of lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM), gathering the insights of over 70 clinicians and basic scientists worldwide. Explores the presentation and treatment of LAM in North America, Europe, and the Far East! LAM and Other Diseases Characterized by Smooth Muscle Proliferation identifies common characteristics between LAM smooth muscle cells and primary and cultured melanoma cells analyzes the incidence of LAM in tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) patients reveals the results of high-resolution CT scans of LAM discusses proteases and other factors in lung disease along with their involvement in LAM offers differential diagnoses of abdominal tumors associated with lung disease investigates genetic factors contributing to LAM and more!
