Deposition of Amyloid a Fibrils in Spleen is Accompanied by Decreased Hepatic and Splenic and Increased Macrophage Serum Amyloid a Expression
Amyloidosis is an occasional sequela to long standing inflammation. The origin of the disorder is multifactorial; the etiology and the duration of inflammation, structure of the serum amyloid A (SAA) precursor, and genetic background of the host are all thought to contribute to amyloid deposition (1-4).
