Amyloidosis is a heterogeneous group of disorders that are characterized by extracellular deposition of misfolded and aggregated autologous proteins leading to organ dysfunction. Amyloid deposits produce diverse clinical syndromes depending on their type, location, and the amount of deposition. Clinical and imaging features of amyloidosis in various organ systems are described.
