We compute the hadronic light-by-light scattering contributions to the muon anomalous magnetic moment, aμLL(had), in chiral perturbation theory that are enhanced by large logarithms and a factor of NC. They depend on a low-energy constant constrained by η→μ+μ- and π0→e+e- branching ratios. However, the dependence of aμLL(had) on nonlogarithmically enhanced effects cannot be constrained except through the measurement of the anomalous moment itself.
