LAM (lymphangioleiomyomatosis) mainly affects the lungs, where it causes an overgrowth of smooth muscle cells, progressively destroying lung tissue and eroding lung function.

LAM Action provides support and information for LAM patients and their families and its annual meeting provides a chance to meet up with other patients and to learn about developments. LAM Action also raises much need money to help fund research into LAM.

The website contains information which may be useful for patients with lymphangioleiomyomatosis or doctors caring for patients with LAM. It also has information on the LAM register, a register of patients with LAM to facilitate research and help to produce management guidelines for patients with this disease.
