Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Finnish hereditary amyloidosis-Meretoja (FAP type 4) is the predominating type of hereditary amyloidosis in the Finnish population, found in more than 200 individuals. We present a Finnish family with familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP Met30), a type of amyloidosis hitherto not described in the Finnish population. Genealogical tracing back to the 18th century revealed no connections with Swedish FAP families, but introduction from Sweden is the most probable origin of the FAP Met30 gene.
