Lymphangiomatosis & Gorham's Disease Alliance

The Lymphangiomatosis & Gorham's Disease Alliance is a patient support foundation focused on providing disease information, helping to find access to medical expertise, and supporting research for two poorly understood, very rare diseases of unknown etiology: lymphangiomatosis and Gorham's disease. These two diseases, which can affect bones, soft tissue and viscera, are benign, but dangerous in infants and young children - especially with infiltration of lesions involving the spine or thoracic region.
