Severe heart failure from light chain cardiomyopathy (cardiac amyloidosis).
Z Kardiol. 2003 Jan; 92(1):90-5.ZK

Abstract

Primary (AL)amyloidosis is characterized by clonal production of immunoglobulin with subsequent deposition in several organs. We describe the clinical features of a 66-year old female who was referred to our department for congestive heart failure. One year before, she was examined and found to have diastolic dysfunction of the left ventricle. We could evaluate the diagnosis of primary amyloid cardiomyopathy by echocardiography, Doppler echocardiography and laboratory findings and confirmed the diagnosis by biopsy of the rectum mucosa. Clinical outcome was poor, because therapy is poor.
