Unusual cardiovascular localization of nonamyloid immunoglobulin deposition disease causing sudden death.

PMID:  1542638     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The case of a 38-yr-old man is presented in whom sudden death was attributed to coronary ostial stenosis caused by aortic intimal deposits of an amyloid-like material. Autopsy revealed wide-spread lymphocytic lymphoma with kappa light chain restriction. Histochemistry, immunoperoxidase light microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and immunoelectron microscopy identified the coronary ostial, and massive other cardiovascular, deposits as para-amyloid of kappa light chain origin.
