  • Clinical description FAP is clinically heterogeneous, with the clinical presentation depending on the genotype and geographic origin. FAP usually presents as a length-dependent sensory polyneuropathy with autonomic disturbances.[orpha.net]
  • Diagnosis is based on clinical presentation, amyloid deposition on tissue biopsy, and the diagnostic hallmark TTR mutation on genetic testing.[ng.neurology.org]
  • Individuals with MWS often have episodic fever, chills, and joint pain. As a result, MWS is considered a type of periodic fever syndrome. MWS is caused by a defect in the CIAS1 gene which creates the protein cryopyrin.[icd.codes]

Long Arm
  • The APOA1 gene, located on the long arm of chromosome 11 (11q23-q24), encoding apolipoprotein A-1 (apoA-I), the main component of high density lipoproteins (HDL) plasma.[ivami.com]
  • Its gene is located on the long arm of chromosome 18 and contains 4 exons and 3 introns. [5] The systemic amyloidoses are designated by a capital A (for amyloid) followed by the abbreviation for the chemical identity of the fibril protein.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • MWS is closely related to two other syndromes, familial cold urticaria and neonatal onset multisystem inflammatory disease—in fact, all three are related to mutations in the same gene and subsumed under the term cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes[icd.codes]
  • Cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome-associated amyloidosis (CAPS) includes familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome (FCAS), Muckle-Wells syndrome (MWS), and neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID).[patient.info]


  • Imaging studies Radiolabeled P-component scanning Cardiac imaging (eg, 2-dimensional echocardiography, electrocardiography, or both; CT scanning; nuclear scintigraphy, cardiac MRI) See Workup for more detail.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • Following this workup the patient should undergo a DNA analysis and tissue biopsy (Table 1 ), although the uneven distribution of amyloid fibrils may yield false-negative results.[ojrd.biomedcentral.com]


  • Following a question-answer approach, including self-assessment material and a ‘refresher’ section on the basic science of this clinical area, Nephrology: Clinical Cases Uncovered features investigations and the treatment options available for patients[books.google.com]
  • Importantly, patisiran administration continues to be generally well tolerated out to 21 months of treatment.[pharmaceuticalintelligence.com]
