Amyloidosis and the Kidney

Authors: Allison B Reiss, Nicolle M Siegart, Heather A Renna, Joshua DeLeon, Lora J Kasselman and Nobuyuki Miyawaki

Abstract: Amyloidosis results from deposition of fibrillar proteinaceous material in the extracellular space in organs and tissues. Diagnosis is made microscopically on biopsy by visualizing apple-green birefringence in Congo red-stained sections under polarized light. Renal amyloidosis most often leads to glomerular deposits, resulting in proteinuria.
