  • CONCLUSIONS: Primary conjunctival amyloidosis is a rare clinical entity that is mainly diagnosed histopathologically. In the presence of a recurrent hyposphagma of unknown aetiology the diagnosis of amyloidosis should be excluded.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Exclusion of generalized secondary amyloidosis is crucial due to the life-threatening nature of the disease. Otherwise, high dose chemotherapy with following autologous bone marrow transplantation is the necessary treatment at the moment.[egms.de]

Treatment

  • Otherwise, high dose chemotherapy with following autologous bone marrow transplantation is the necessary treatment at the moment. Conclusions Monoclonal gammopathy can result in high vascular fragility by conjunctival amyloid deposition.[egms.de]
  • Treatment of the underlying disease and of DIC with rapid onset of total remission lead to resorption of the conjunctival haemorrhages and fast reduction of the retinal detachment. 1980 S.[karger.com]
