[Plasmocytoma-associated bullous hemorrhagic amyloidosis of the skin].Hautarzt. 1982 Oct; 33(10):556-8.H
Case report of a 70-year-old woman with plasmocytoma-associated bullous "amyloid purpura" and a lambda light-chain IgA paraproteinemia. Cutaneous hemorrhage with blisters, erosions, and milia in the intertriginous areas were the main clinical features. Amyloid deposits in the walls of blood vessels, and the pericollagenous affinity of the amyloid in the dermis are likely to be responsible for the increased capillary fragility, i.e., the hemorrhagic tendency and the infrapapillary blisters. A differentiation from epidermolysis bullosa acquisita and porphyria cutanea tarda is possible by means of the histological level of the blisters.
