Abstract

Lymphangioleiomyomatosis is a rare progressive cystic lung disease affecting young women in childbearing ages. It generally presents with respiratory manifestations varying from simple cough to recurrent pneumothorax and chylothorax. There is known female gender predominance, highlighting the important roles for sex hormones in the pathophysiology and progression of this disease. In this case report we describe a 26 year old woman with history of dyspnea and pneumothorax during her molar pregnancy.
