PMID:  8651255     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In a patient successfully transplanted 10 years earlier, we confirm that wrist and shoulder bone cysts, present at the time of transplantation, remain unchanged in size and number and demonstrate, for the first time, that they still contain beta-2-microglobulin (beta2m) amyloid. Regression of beta2m amyloid deposits in bone cysts disappears, if at all, very slowly.
