Authors:  Jamie M. Massie, M.D., Roland G. Nador, M.D., and Michael H. Dahan, M.D.
 
BACKGROUND: Lymphangioleiomyomatosis is a rare condition which presents with diffuse fibroids, among other issues. Often, uterine fibroids are present; how-ever, the disease complicates management.

CASE: A 44-year-old woman with lymphangioleio-myomatosis (LAM) and menorrhagia underwent hysterectomy.

CONCLUSION: LAM should be managed cautiously with hormonal manipulations since all types risk exacerbation of the disease process.
Keywords:  leiomyoma, lymphangioleiomyomatosis, magnetic resonance imaging, menorrhagia
