Abstract

Both pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis and tuberous sclerosis are rare diseases. The optimal management in pregnancy is unclear. A primigravida with pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis and tuberous sclerosis complicated by worsening renal function secondary to angiomyolipomas was managed conservatively. Favorable maternal and neonatal outcomes were achieved. Pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis is a consideration in tuberous sclerosis patients with respiratory symptoms. Tuberous sclerosis patients with pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis require cautious and calculated expectant management in an effort to avoid adverse outcomes.
