[1,3] The major PLCA are papular (lichen), macular and nodular amyloidosis
. Uncommon variants are dyschromic amyloidosis and familial amyloidosis.

Monoclonality of infiltrating plasma cells in primary pulmonary nodular amyloidosis: detection with polymerase chain reaction.
PCLA is classified into lichen, macular,and nodular amyloidosis. Macular amyloidosis and lichen amyloidosis are named as biphasic amyloidosis when they are concurrently seen in a patient.
The spectrum of primary cutaneous nodular amyloidosis: Two illustrative cases.
(12,35) As with nodular amyloidosis
, thin-walled air cysts would support the diagnosis.
Instead, pathology identified nodular amyloidosis
, which is associated with the AA type of amyloid.
DISCUSSION: Macular amyloidosis is one of the forms of primary localized cutaneous amyloidosis, others being lichen amyloidosis, nodular amyloidosis
and biphasic (macular +lichen) amyloidosis.
CLASS III: FOCAL MESANGIOCAPILLARY AMYLOID DEPOSITION (INCLUDING NODULAR AMYLOIDOSIS
Of the several types of amyloidosis, nodular amyloidosis
is the type found most frequently in the larynx and nasopharynx, as well as in the trachea and lungs.
