Article on LAM Published in Society of Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM)


The University of Cincinnati’s Nishant Gupta, MD, recently wrote and published a commentary article about Primary Spontaneous Pneumothorax for the Society of Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM) Journal. The article explains that a primary spontaneous pneumothorax can often be the symptom of a more serious underlying lung disease, such as lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM), Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome or pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis.

This article is an important step in building LAM and rare lung disease awareness within the healthcare community. Later this year, The LAM Foundation will attend the SAEM annual conference and continue to educate emergency room doctors about LAM diagnosis and treatment.
