Cutaneous Amyloidosis Associated With Primary Biliary Cirrhosis

Jean R Tafarel et al. Eur J Gastroenterol Hepatol. .


Primary cutaneous amyloidosis is defined as the deposition of amyloid in the skin in the absence of systemic involvement. The association between primary cutaneous amyloidosis and other diseases, although rare, has been documented for connective tissue disorders such as systemic sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. We report the case of a 41-year-old woman who developed primary biliary cirrhosis in association with primary cutaneous amyloidosis. This association has not been reported before in the literature.
