Amyloidosis is a group of progressive and devastating disorders resulting from extracellular deposition of misfolded proteins into tissues. When deposition of fibrils occurs in cardiac tissues, this systemic disease can lead to a very poor prognosis. Systemic amyloidosis can be acquired [light chain (AL) amyloidosis; AA amyloidosis], or hereditary [transthyretin (ATTR) amyloidosis]. Cardiac disease in amyloidosis is usually secondary to a systemic disease. The diagnosis of cardiac involvement is often delayed and yields an adverse prognosis.

Abstract

Amyloidosis is a group of progressive and devastating disorders resulting from extracellular deposition of misfolded proteins into tissues. When deposition of fibrils occurs in cardiac tissues, this systemic disease can lead to a very poor prognosis. Systemic amyloidosis can be acquired [light chain (AL) amyloidosis; AA amyloidosis], or hereditary [transthyretin (ATTR) amyloidosis]. Cardiac disease in amyloidosis is usually secondary to a systemic disease. The diagnosis of cardiac involvement is often delayed and yields an adverse prognosis.
