Unusual amyloid polyneuropathy with predominant lurnbosacral nerve roots and plexus involvement

February 1991 issue
41 (2_part_1) 206

Abstract

We report a 25-year-old patient with a progressive asymmetric peripheral neuropathy of the distal lower limbs. Imaging studies showed enlargement of lumbosacral roots, plexus, and proximal sciatic nerve. Sacral plexus biopsy revealed amyloidosis associated with endoneurial edema. Immunohistochemistry with anti-prealbumin, serum amyloid A, and immunoglobulin light chain antisera failed to label the amyloid.
