Abstract

This article provides an overview of the current concepts in pathogenesis, epidemiology, clinical significance, and treatment options for amyloidosis. Emphasis is given to hepatic amyloidosis, which ranges from a clinically insignificant histologic curiosity to a harbinger of widespread disease accompanied by a poor prognosis. Clinical characteristics and clues to the diagnosis are discussed as well as the importance of histologic confirmation and the controversy surrounding liver biopsy.
