About The LAM Foundation

The LAM Foundation urgently seeks safe and effective treatments, and ultimately a cure, for lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) through advocacy and the funding of promising research.

We are dedicated to serving the scientific, medical and patient communities by offering information, resources and a worldwide network of hope and support.

What is Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM)

Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (lim-FAN-je-o-LI-o-MI-o-ma-TO-sis) is a rare lung disease that usually strikes women during the prime of their lives. Known as LAM for short, this disease is characterized by an abnormal growth of smooth muscle cells, especially in the lungs, lymphatic system and kidneys. Unregulated growth of these cells can lead to loss of lung function, accumulation of lymph rich-fluid in the chest and abdomen and growth of tumors in the kidneys. There are two forms of LAM, Sporadic LAM (S-LAM) and Tuberous Sclerosis LAM (TSC-LAM). S-LAM occurs for unknown reasons. LAM also can occur in women who have a rare disease called TUBEROUS SCLEROSIS COMPLEX (TSC).
