Chinese Abstract

淋巴管肌瘤增生症是一個罕見的疾病,幾乎都只影響生育年齡女性。最常見的放射學表現是氣胸,乳糜胸和許多薄壁的囊腫在兩側肺野,這些已經是很常見的表現。淋巴攝影是一個傳統的檢查,隨著電腦斷層的快速發展,這項檢查越來越少被實施。這次我們將介紹一個淋巴管肌瘤增生症的病例並且以不同的影像診斷工具呈現,使用淋巴攝影來表現。

English Abstract

The lymphangiomyomatosis is a rare disease of unknown etiology, almost affecting childbearing women. The typical radiologic manifestations of this disease are pneumothorax, chylothorax and multiple thin-walled cysts throughout the bilateral lung parenchyma, which have been well-documented in the literature. The lymphangiography is a conventional image modality, rarely performed nowadays due to the rapid development of cross-sectional imaging modalities such as computed tomography. Herein we will report a case of lymphangiomyomatosis with the different image modality, lymphangiography.
