Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of marked hepatic and splenic calcification due to primary amyloidosis is presented. Although the patient had been treated with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis, there was no evidence of a causal relationship with the calcification. Amyloid is known to have an affinity for calcium, but this radiographic manifestation has not been previously reported.
