Hello, folks. My friend was administrated to the hospital three days ago. Doctors suspect on pulmonary amyloidosis and want to be sure. I am not sure which symptoms he had. I would like to ask what causes this disease. I must admit that I don't know much about it. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Hello. Amyloidosis is a group of diseases that have something in common. It is a pathological extracellular deposition of insoluble fibrillar proteins in various organs and tissues. Various organs can be affected. Most common presentation is in kidneys, heart, liver and peripheral nerves. Lungs are not so common. I think that this disease is genetically caused, but I am not sure. Pulmonary deposition joined with depositions in other organs is more common. Isolated pulmonary deposition is not so usual. I hope I've helped you a little. Good luck!
