To the Editor: Dr Moss and colleagues1 found that among 250 women with lymphangioleiomyomatosis
(LAM) who received screening magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), 8 were found
to have meningiomas. Although Moss et al divided these 8 patients into 3 groups—normal
neurologic findings (6 patients), "sensorimotor abnormalities" (1 patient),
and "focal neurologic abnormality (1 patient)"—these clinical terms
were not clearly described. It is uncertain whether these symptoms were related
to the meningiomas or perhaps to some other cause. No imaging characteristics
of the lesions were described, except that 2 patients had multiple meningiomas.
