Howdy, guys. I have recently heard that my neighbor has a pulmonary amyloidosis. I haven't heard about this condition before and I would like to find out something more. For instance, how rare is it? Can anyone tell me anything about this? It would mean a lot to me. Thanks. Bye!

Hello to you too. Amyloidosis represents accumulation of pathological fibrillar proteins in various organs. The most common organs affected are kidney, liver, peripheral nerves and heart. Lungs are not so usual localization. There can be deposition in lungs featured with other affected organs. Isolated pulmonary amyloidosis is really rare. Some patients have pulmonary hypertension. I am afraid that I don't know more details. I will try to find out more details. If you find out anything new, please let me know. Bye!
