Clinical Practice Guidelines: Lymphangioleiomyomatosis Diagnosis and Management

The American Thoracic Society (ATS) and the Japanese Respiratory Society (JRS) have published new clinical practice guidelines for the diagnosis and management of lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM).

The guidelines, written by a 27-member multidisciplinary committee of clinicians and scientists, make five recommendations related to the diagnosis and treatment of the disease based on a systematic review of medical studies published through May 2015. The strength of the recommendations and the quality of the evidence supporting them were rated using the Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development, and Evaluation, or GRADE, approach. The guidelines also highlight research opportunities related to each of the recommendations.
