Breast involvement by amyloidosis has rarely been reported in the literature, first by Fernandez and Hernandez [2] in 1973.Breast amyloidosis can be part of a systemic amyloidosis disease or it may be limited to the breast and therefore be cause of misdiagnosis.

Kidney Involvement in Systemic Calcitonin Amyloidosis

Amyloidosis can manifest as a systemic or general-ized disease when the precursor is produced at one site (eg, in bone marrow or liver), distributed via the circulation, and deposited at distant sites such as the kidney and heart. In contrast, localized amyloidosis is defined by restriction of both precursor production

Conversely, when the disease is systemic, the TBT is generally spared. We report a rare case of systemic AL amyloidosis with involvement of the TBT and the lungs (1-3).

The common forms of systemic amyloidosis are: primary (AL), sec-ondary (AA), dialysis-related, senile and familial amy-loidotic polyneuropathy.6 Several disease states can lead to the development of systemic amyloidosis as shown in Table 1.5, 7 Clinical manifestations of amy-

Primary Systemic Amyloidosis with Bloody Pericardial Effusion

Pathological autopsy revealed primary systemic amy-loidosis. Pathologically it was possible that the local inflammation (epicarditis) due to the deposition of amy-loid in the epicardium and perivascular tissue caused the bloody effusion.

In systemic amyloidosis, the unnatural protein is produced at a site that is remote from the site(s) of deposition, whereas in localized disease the protein is produced at the site of deposition.

In addition, metastatic renal cell carcinoma may exhibit an SAA-rich stroma [18], and pulmon-ary localisation of light-chain disease can masquerade as amyloidosis by tissue deposition of nonamyloid kchains [19]. The mechanism of cyst formation in pulmonary nodular amyloidosis remains unknown, but is thought to be

Amyloidosis is a rare cause of a nasopharyngeal lesion, and less so a secondary middle ear effusion.

Ultrasound-guided percutaneous renal biopsy-induced

Primary systemic amyloidosis is a malignant plasma cell disease. Classification of the amyloidosis is based on the precursor protein that forms the amyloid fibrils and the distribution of amyloid deposition as either systemic or localized. To date, 25 structurally unrelated proteins are known to cause amyloidosis [7]. The major types of

Primary bladder amyloidosis mimicking bladder malignancy

Amyloidosis is a rare disease characterized by the deposition of extracellular, hyaline and proteinaceous material in various organs of the body.1 It can present as a primary or secondary disorder with systemic or localized manifestations. Primary bladder Amyloidosis is more common than that of the renal pelvis, ureter and urethra.2
