Abstract

HIV/AIDS is a multi system disease, often associated with a variety of chronic inflammatory and infective diseases of varying aetiology. Amyloidosis is a disorder of protein metabolism characterised by extracellular deposition of pathological insoluble fibrillar proteins in organs and tissues [1]. We report a patient with amyloidosis associated with AIDS.
