Oral amyloidosis is usually presented in the tongue and is often regarded as a paraneoplastic phenomenon. We present a rare case of primary local amyloidosis in the palate of an 80-year-old male. No simultaneous general illnesses or malignancies were detected in spite of extensive assessments by specialists in internal medicine.
