Late onset renal failure and nephrotic syndrome after autologous stem cell transplant for Al amyloidosis

, : Late onset renal failure and nephrotic syndrome after autologous stem cell transplant for Al amyloidosis. Renal Failure 34(5): 664-666

We present a patient with AL amyloidosis who had an autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) over 9 years ago. She has since then developed slowly progressive renal insufficiency and the nephrotic syndrome. Hematologic evaluation has failed to identify recurrent disease and a renal biopsy demonstrated extensive amyloid deposition and substantial glomerulosclerosis. We suggest that the patient has chronic glomerulosclerosis as a consequence of renal damage associated with her disease process and her treatment.
