Amyloidosis often affects many organs in the body, including the
heart, liver, kidneys, and nervous system. This disease is caused by a
build up of proteins, called amyloid fibrils, in various organs in the
body. Because it is a relatively uncommon disease, it is frequently
challenging to correctly diagnose amyloidosis.
