Amiloidosis is reported in a common shelduck (Tadorna tadorna) and in a white swan (Cygnus olor). Histologically, eosinophilic material suggestive of amyloid was predominantly observed in the basal membrane of the renal glomeruli, tubules and in the liver. The Congo red special stain with and without treatment by potassium permanganate confirmed the positivity for amyloid AA.

    Amyloidosis cutis dyschromica (ACD) is a rare form of macular amyloidosis characterized by hypo and hyperpigmented macules. Here we described a 20 year old girl with diffuse hypo and hyperpigmentation since she was four years old. Five other members of her family are also involved. Biopsy of...

    Between June 1983 and December 2002, 32 patients were treated for primary localized laryngo-tracheobronchial amyloidosis (LTBA) at our institution. For enrollment in this retrospective study, at least one positive biopsy with Congo red stain and a diagnostic test battery excluding systemic or...
