AA amyloidosis complicating sarcoidosis


, : AA amyloidosis complicating sarcoidosis. La Revue de Medecine Interne 20(2): 168-170

Amyloidosis combined with sarcoidosis has been very rarely described. We report the case of a 72-year-old man presenting with sarcoidosis and amyloidosis AA. The association of peripheral and retroperitoneal adenopathies accompanied by loss of weight and histopathological results conducted to the diagnosis of sarcoidosis, excluding other causes. Corticosteroid therapy led to a decrease in clinical manifestations and after 2 years, clinical signs of amyloidosis have not progressed. According to results previously described in the literature and the description of the present case, we conclude that sarcoidosis can be complicated by amyloidosis AA, the presence of which may justify corticosteroid therapy.
