Özet

Lymphangiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare and systemic disease that is characterized by the abnormal proliferation of smooth muscle-like cells in the lungs and along the axial lymphatic system. The authors herein present a rare case of LAM that was treated with long-term use of leuprolide acetate, a gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogue (GnRHa).
