Background. Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is a frequent finding in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). CAA may be complicated with CAA-associated intracerebral haemorrhage (CAAH). Previous studies have revealed matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) expression in a mouse model of...
The process of deterioration of peripheral nerve function in familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP) with amyloidogenic transthyretin (ATTR) Val30Met has not been systematically evaluated hitherto. We performed nerve conduction studies in 69 patients with FAP with ATTR Val30Met from one of the...
Introduction. FibroScan, a non-invasive tool for measuring liver stiffness (LS), is not specific to liver fibrosis. Other extra-hepatic conditions may modify the LS value.Objectives. Our aim was to examine whether amyloid deposition in the liver may modify LS.Methods. LS was measured...
Risk for amyloidosis in rheumatic diseases is associated with a long-lasting inflammation. To assess possible changes in the incidence of terminal uraemia due to amyloidosis associated with rheumatic diseases on a nationwide basis, we scrutinised the files of the Finnish Registry for Kidney...
Persistent pleural effusions (PPE) occur in 1–2% of cases of systemic amyloidosis and have been postulated to result from direct disruption of the pleura by amyloid deposits. Patients are typically treated with percutaneous pleural drainage techniques. Pleural biopsies, done most commonly via...
Systemic amyloidosis may infiltrate the thyroid or other endocrine glands but rarely causes endocrine dysfunction. We describe a 45 years old female patient with diffusely enlarged goiter and hypopituitarism secondary to amyloid infiltration of the thyroid gland and possibly pituitary gland,...
