Though the Lymphangioleiomyomatosis is actually a disease of the lung, it is known to affect the fertility age and the child-bearing age of women. It is a rarely occurring form of disease that is referred to as LAM. Common symptoms here include wheezing cough, which is accompanied with blood. In some cases, it means acute stomach pain and also collapsing functions of the lung.
HOW IS LYMPHANGIOLEIOMYOMATOSIS DIAGNOSED?
The common diagnosis methods by a GP would include Pulmonary function tests, X-ray, CT scan, bronchoscopy and also ultrasound to check for tumours too.
HOW IS LYMPHANGIOLEIOMYOMATOSIS TREATED?
Standard treatment is lung transplantation, but the disorder can recur in transplanted lungs. Recent data suggest that sirolimus can help stabilize or slow the decline in pulmonary function among patients with moderate lung impairment. In addition, inhaled bronchodilators (albuterol, ipratropium) can help open the airways, reducing shortness of breath in some people. Because hormones like estrogen seem to be involved in LAM lung disease, treatments that manipulate hormone levels could help some people with LAM.
DID YOU KNOW?
Malignant tumours are often associated with the disease and hence a surgery could be required to remove the same. If not treated on time, this could affect fertility and hamper lung functions.
