    More than 20 human diseases are associated with protein misfolding, which results in the appearance of amyloids, fibrillar aggregates of normally soluble proteins. Such diseases are termed amyloid diseases, or amyloidoses. Of these, only prion diseases are transmissible. Amyloids of the prion...

    Amyloidosis is a disease characterized by depositions of amyloid in organs and tissues. It can be localized (in just one organ) or systemic. Cardiac amyloidosis is a debilitating disease and can lead to arrhythmias, deterioration of heart function and even sudden death. We reviewed...

    Amyloidosis is a rare disease caused by extracellular deposits of insoluble fibrillar proteins in various organs and tissues. There are different forms of amyloidosis distinguished by the type of protein fibrils, by the sites of deposition and by associated conditions. Gastrointestinal...

    We present a 26-year-old man with edema, ascites and bloody diarrhea that later proved to be due to gastrointestinal and renal amyloidosis. Interestingly, he was also diagnosed as having ankylosing spondylitis,-possibly after a delay of 12 years. The obscure diagnosis and challenging treatment...
