Amyloidosis is a rare disease caused by extracellular deposits of insoluble fibrillar proteins in various organs and tissues. There are different forms of amyloidosis distinguished by the type of protein fibrils, by the sites of deposition and by associated conditions. Gastrointestinal involvement is common both in primary and secondary amyloidosis, while isolated gastrointestinal amyloidosis is rare.

Introduction:…show more content… Amyloidosis is defined as the extracellular deposition of nonbranching fibrils composed of a variety of serum-protein precursors. Different low-molecular-weight (5–25 kDa) proteins have been found to deposit in various organs, thus creating subunits that provide the basis for the classification of amyloidosis. Clinical manifestations of amyloidosis may vary from asymptomatic to fatal forms. Amyloid deposition can be a complication of inflammatory-bowel disease, usually developing on average 15 years from the initial diagnosis of IBD
