Rare Disease Amyloidosis

Amyloidosis is a rare disease. This disease occurs when an abnormal protein, amyloid, builds up in any part of the human body.

  • Usually, this protein is absent in the body. This abnormal protein negatively affects the size and function of organs.
  • Amyloidosis may be secondary to another health condition or may also develop in the human body as a primary disease.
  • Amyloid can accumulate in the heart, brain, kidneys, spleen, and other parts of the body. This can lead to life-threatening conditions such as organ failure.
  • The cause of this disease called amyloidosis is still unknown.
  • There are also different types of amyloidosis. Some are currently in vogue, such as light-chain (AL), AA, related to dialysis, transthyretin, etc.
