Alternate names

AA AMYLOIDOSIS Is also known as secondary amyloidosis, inflammatory amyloidosis, reactive amyloidosis


Secondary amyloidosis is a form of amyloidosis (see this term), that complicates chronic inflammatory disorders (mainly rheumatoid arthritis, see this term) and is characterized by the aggregation and deposition of amyloid fibrils composed of serum amyloid A protein, an acute phase reactant. Although spleen, suprarenal gland, liver and gut are frequent sites of amyloid deposition, the clinical picture is dominated by renal involvement.

Most common symptoms of AA AMYLOIDOSIS

  • Hepatomegaly
  • Vomiting
  • Abnormal heart morphology
  • Abdominal pain
  • Hypothyroidism
