Amyloid of the seminal vesicles. A distinctive and common localized form of senile amyloidosis.

Abstract

Amyloid deposits were found subepithelially in the seminal vesicles of 34 of 209 consecutively studied men. The incidence increased with age and was found in 21% of men over 75 years. This senile seminal vesicle amyloidosis (SSVA) is a localized disorder, and the amyloid substance has unique histochemical and immunochemical properties not shared with any other amyloid described until now.
