Our knowledge about LAM has expanded over the past decade. Many studies have focused on hormonal aspects of LAM, although the role of estrogens in the pathogenesis of LAM remains unknown. Elucidation of the mechanism for formation of the cystic lesions characteristic of LAM will be critical in the development of therapies for LAM. It is important for clinicians to be familiar with LAM as we approach the next decade and new treatments.
