Association of systemic light-chain deposition disease and amyloidosis: a report of three patients with renal involvement.Clin Nephrol. 1985 Aug; 24(2):93-8.CN
Three patients with renal involvement, plasma cell dyscrasia and systemic light chain deposition are reported in whom well characterized amyloid deposits were also found in the vessel walls. This association, not yet reported, is probably more frequent than believed and still brings nearer these two manifestations of monoclonal light chain deposition. Whether or not the finding of amyloid deposits during systemic light chain deposition is a separate entity and modifies the prognosis remains to be answered.
