nodular amyloidosis

nod·u·lar am·y·loi·do·sis

a localized form of amyloidosis in which amyloid occurs as hard masses or nodules beneath the skin or mucous membranes, for example, in the larynx, often with local plasma cell infiltration; may be associated with plasma cell dyscrasia or systemic amyloidosis.

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.

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.
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.
