Lymphangioleiomyomatosis: Abnormal cell growth in lungs.
Lymphangioleiomyomatosis: Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare lung disease that was first described in the medical literature by von Stossel in 1937. The disease is characterized by an unusual type of muscle cell that invades the tissue of the lungs, including the airways, and blood and lymph vessels. Over time, these muscle cells form into bundles and grow into the walls of the airways, and blood and lymph vessels, causing them to become obstructed. 1
