Abstract

The aim of this paper is to provide a framework for the evaluation of AA and AL amyloid disease based on our experience with 162 well defined cases seen up to December 1986. We will discuss the associated conditions, presenting manifestations, results of biopsy procedures, immunohistochemical classification, aspects of system involvement, scintigraphy, prognosis and therapeutic approach.
