    peripheral neuropathy, and spinal degeneration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Examples are infections of the ileum, such as by tuberculosis or possibly by HIV, or cancer of the ileum (lymphoma).[spokesman.com] Examples include surgical resection or involvement with regional ileitis, lymphoma, or tuberculosis of the ileum.[web.archive.org]

  • Amyloidosis

    Tafamidis is a TTR stabilizer that is orally administered and, by interfering with amyloid fibril formation and deposition, is capable of slowing progression of TTR polyneuropathy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] amyloidosis occurs due to the presence of another disease, particularly chronic infections or inflammatory diseases such as cystic fibrosis, Hodgkin disease, multiple myeloma and tuberculosis[rush.edu] In contrast to primary amyloidosis, secondary amyloidosis occurs in association with a chronic disease such as tuberculosis, syphilis, rheumatoid arthritis, leprosy, or Hodgkin[britannica.com]
