Paulo was hospitalized for decompensated heart failure (HF)... The cardinal manifestations of HF are dyspnea and fatigue, which in The patient returned to the emergency room with worsening dyspnea on exertion and disease or, more likely, with the kidney disease and decompensated HF, because the patient did not present significant risk factors for ischemic cardiovascular disease... increased voltage on the ECG; and therefore, the findings of ventricular hypertrophy associated with reduced voltage on the ECG in the absence of pericardial effusion are In the right ventricular involvement, signs of right-side HF predominated with light antibody chains (kappa and lambda) in the amyloid deposits yielded negative results... significantly compromise the heart, accompanying chronic inflammatory diseases that the patient did not have... Immunohistochemical reactions for the immunoglobulins yielded negative results.

f08: Histological slides showing amyloid deposits outside the cardiovascular system:tongue (left panel) and skin (right panel).

Mentions: The microscopic study revealed the presence of amyloid material in the intramyocardialcoronary branches; the endocardium and myocardium; particularly, the subendocardialregion, the pulmonary artery; and in part of its intraparenchymal branches, the vesselsof the renal hilum, and the glomerular capillaries, on the wall of splenic vessels andhepatic portal spaces (Figure 7). Amyloidsubstance was also found in the skin, tongue, bladder, and most markedly, in themyometrium and the muscular layer of the digestive tract (Figure 8).
