Intrathoracic manifestations of amyloid disease

Radiology. 1976 Aug;120(2):283-9. doi: 10.1148/120.2.283.


Nine cases of intrathoracic amyloid disease have been reviewed. A brief summary of historical material is presented along with detailed descriptions of the more pertinent cases. Observations suggest that a classification of the radiographic manifestations is needed with stress on massive calcific lymph node enlargement and a pulmonary lesion characterized by aggregations of small nodules.
