a セ i B y l o i d diseaseis known also as lardaceousor waxy disease. The term "amyloid" is not apt, as the substancecontainsnitrogen and is more allied chemically to albumin or gelatin than to starch. It has been termed lardacein-it is not a simple degeneration product and affected organs are enlarged.It follows prolongedsuppurationin conditions of chronic sepsis, syphilis, tuberculosis of bones, joints and lungs and empyema;but it also occurs in syphilis without suppurationand in the… 
Amyloidosis and Cardiac Surgery
It is recognized that amyloidosis is a heterogeneous infiltrative disease in which insoluble protein deposits are accumulated in various organs with deleterious effects on their functional integrity.

Transthyretin amyloidsosis is truly the prototype of the hereditary systemic amyloidoses and displays all of the characteristics of this group of fibril protein deposition diseases.
CASE REPORT: Primary Biliary Cirrhosis and Systemic Amyloidosis, a New Association
This case review reports the first association between primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) and AA, the most common form of systemic amyloid deposition in the Western world.
A Case of Secondary Amyloidosis Involving Heart due to Rheumatoid Arthritis
A case of secondary amyloidosis associated with rheumatoid arthritis, especially involving heart, which was confirmed by endomyocardial biopsy and immunohistochemical stain showed AA type and the patient died suddenly after twelve hours.
Oral Localized Amyloidosis
The authors recommended that patients with local amyloidosis be referred to specialists for further evaluation, since the evolution of the local disease can be life-threatening and management requires close follow-up.
Rare presentations of primary amyloidosis as ptosis: a case report
The varied presentations of ocular adnexal and orbital amyloidosis often lead to a significant delay between first symptoms and diagnosis, and immediate confirmatory biopsy and subsequent systemic workup should be performed whenever amyloidsosis is highly suspected.
Nodular pulmonary amyloidosis with spontaneous fatal blood aspiration.
Localized ENT Amyloidosis – Literature Overview
The objective is to study the epidemioloclinical characteristics of ENT amyloidosis and the management of those localizations.
A case of primary systemic amyloidosis
Tenderness and limitation of motion was found in all joints of the upper and lower extremities, neck and lumbar region, and primary systemic amyloidosis is a rare disease with an incidence of < 1/100 000 in the UK.
A new therapy for transthyretin amyloidosis, no longer an orphan condition
To understand and recognize this condition is very important, stemming from the availability of ‘aetiology oriented therapies’ (designed to prevent, control and possibly regress amyloid deposition), which should be added to the ‘supportive therapies' used for the treatment of the complication of the condition, namely heart failure.
