Localized amyloidosis, also known as amyloidoma
, entails local amyloid accumulation in the extracellular compartments of tissues, resulting in nodular masses.
Percutaneous biopsy of the dominant intrathoracic and abdominal wall masses demonstrated congo red staining with apple-green birefringence under polarized light, large amyloid deposits with focal calcifications, and evidence of fibrosis--findings consistent with amyloidoma
. The masses were surgically excised with the following findings: The intrathoracic mass was firmly attached to the chest wall at the level of the 10th rib and the left lower lobe.

Therefore, when a mass is detected in the intestines of a patient with FMF, it is important to remember that amyloidoma
could be the cause.
