INTRODUCTION: BML affects primarily women of child-bearing age with a h/o tobacco use. It presents with multiple lung nodules that on pathology consist of proliferating smooth muscle cells. Lymphangioleiyomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare disease affecting a similar demographic but no strong predilection for smokers, and presents with formation of multiple cysts and on pathology is similar to BML. It causes a predominantly obstructive pattern on PFT's.
