Occurrence of amyloid deposits in the skin in secondary systemic amyloidosis
1972 (English)In: Acta Pathologica Microbiologica Scandinavica, Section A Pathology, ISSN 0365-4185, Vol. A 80, no 6, 718-720 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Among 9 patients with secondary systemic amyloidosis, 8 had amyloid deposits in the skin. Amyloid was found in the deepest part of the dermis around the adnexa and in the subcutaneous tissue in the form of rings around fat cells. The amount of amyloid varied somewhat between different skin areas and, among the parts of the body examined, the scalp and the abdominal skin showed the heaviest infiltration. It is obvious that secondary amyloidosis can be diagnosed by means of skin biopsy in many cases.
