    Lymphangiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare disease involving myomatosis of the lung, found primarily in women exclusively of childbearing age. This volume attempts to broaden the available knowledge base concerning this disease on which relatively few investigators are working and compare the presentation of this disease and its treatment in Europe, North America, and the Far East. The volume's 29 contributions address worldwide perspectives on LAM; LAM and other chronic lung diseases; imaging features and pathology of LAM; smooth muscle diversity, growth, and signaling pathways; tumor-specific antigens and regulatory proteins in LAM and tuberous sclerosis complex; and pathogenesis and lung destruction and cystic disease.
