Abstract

Deposition of amyloid in ststemic amyloidosis may cause widespread dysfunction of the entire gastrointestinal tract, Intestinal pseudoobstruction is an uncommon but well-recognized complication of systemic amyloidosis, and its prognosis is poor and conventional treatment is ineffective. We report a case of intestinal pseudoobstruction secondary to systemic amyloidosis diagnosed by endoscopic mucosal biopsy in a patient with multiple myeloma.
