Abstract

Although familial amyloidosis of Andrade type is mainly manifested by polyneuropathy, it is complicated with involvement of multiple visceral organs including the heart, kidney, intestine and so on (Andrade, 1952, 1965). We have reported some clinicopathological aspects of the disease. In this paper, through the analysis of clinical and pathological findings of autopsy cases, the factors leading to the cause of death are clarified.
