ABSTRACT
Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare, progressive cystic lung disease, characterized by a proliferation of immature smooth muscle cell (LAM cell) in the airway, parenchyma, lymph nodes and pulmonary vessels. It mainly affects women in their reproductive years. It is clinically manifested by recurrent pneumothorax, progressive dyspnea on exertion and chylothorax; it can also ultimately lead to respiratory failure. However, no curative treatment for LAM is currently available. We report an anesthetic management for cesarean delivery in a parturient newly diagnosed with LAM.
