THE AUTOIMMUNE CONSTELLATION IN LICHEN AMYLOIDOSIS.Rev Med Chir Soc Med Nat Iasi. 2015 Oct-Dec; 119(4):1045-50.RM
Localized cutaneous amyloidosis is a rare disease among white people, being more common in South-Asia, China and South America. The disease is characterized by deposition of amyloid material in the papillary dermis without visceral involvement. Nevertheless, there is a growing list of immune-mediated disorders that have been linked to cutaneous amyloidosis. We present two cases of concomitant occurrence of lichen amyloidosis and autoimmune thyroiditis/atopic dermatitis in two Caucasian women.
