OLASCOAGA-MESIA, Ana C et al. Nephrotic syndrome due to light chain deposition disease with extra-renal AL amyloidosis. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2016, vol.27, n.3, pp.181-185. ISSN 1018-130X.

We present the case of a 58-year-old male patient who developed nephrotic syndrome in a period of two months. A monoclonal IgM kappa band was found with serum immune fixation. A biopsy of the oral mucosa showed the presence of likely AL amyloid, and the renal biopsy showed deposit of kappa light chains in the messangium with negative lambda chains.

Keywords : Nephrotic syndrome; paraproteinemias; amyloidosis; kidney diseases.
