Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Within a 3-month period, a 71-year-old man went from an asymptomatic, active existence to intractable heart failure and death. Widespread amyloid deposition was noted on the histologic examination of endomyocardial biopsy samples. The historical and laboratory features of this patient's rapidly devastating clinical course form the basis of this report.
