Abstract

Amyloidosis is a rare, fatal disease caused by deposition of a sulfated mucopolysaccharide in various tissues and organs. Seven to ten per cent of patients with multiple myeloma, a disease of abnormal myeloid cells, have associated amyloidosis. A case of amyloidosis associated with multiple myeloma is described and a differential diagnosis for oral amyloidosis is presented to familiarize the practitioner with this entity.
