|Abstract:||Pulmonary lymphangiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare disease of unknown aetiology which occurs exclusively in women, usually of reproductive age. The findings on CT and high-resolution CT (HRCT) are well described and characteristic, and in a young woman they are virtually pathognomonic. A case of symptomatic, radiological and measured lung function deterioration following contrast-enhanced CT in a patient with LAM are reported here. These observations, to the authors' knowledge, have never been reported before. The authors attempt to explain these observations based on the known pathology of LAM.|
