A 30-year-old woman was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in January 2006. One year later, she presented because of severe back pain and was diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). In February 2008, the patient, while still under standard treatment for ulcerative colitis and AS, was admitted because of massive proteinuria and related symptoms. Nephrotic syndrome was observed and renal biopsy revealed amyloid deposits. After treatment with infliximab, nephrotic syndrome disappeared. We aim to present a case of secondary amyloidosis complicating ulcerative colitis and associated spondyloarthropathy.
