Abstract

Dr Havi Carel was diagnosed with Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) in 2006. In the four years since she has learnt much about the adaptability of the human body and about some clinicians’ insensitivity to the quality of life issues that can be so important to patients with chronic illnesses. She has also involved herself actively in LAM research. This is her story. It is accompanied by a clinical perspective provided by her treating physician and information about LAM provided by a UK LAM specialist.
