Response of primary hepatic amyloidosis to melphalan and prednisone: a case report and review of the literature.

Abstract

We report the first case of biopsy-proven primary hepatic amyloidosis in which histologic regression was demonstrated after therapy with melphalan and prednisone. On the basis of the cumulative reported experience regarding the treatment of this rare plasma cell dyscrasia, we recommend a trial of cytotoxic therapy for patients with primary hepatic amyloidosis.
