Abstract

Systemic amyloidosis is a rare condition that can manifest with cardiomyopathy, hepatic dysfunction, and renal disease. Diagnosis is often missed and/or delayed due to chronic multi-system involvement and indeterminate signs and symptoms. Treatment generally involves systemic therapy and autologous stem-cell transplantation.
