Familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy is the hereditary form of transthyretin amyloidosis that is rapidly progressive. Discordant expression of Val30Met transthyretin amyloid in monozygotic twins has been reported in the past, in Europe and Asia. We report the first case of discordant expression of Lys35Thr transthyretin amyloid in female monozygotic twins in… CONTINUE READING
