Abstract

LECT2 amyloidosis is the latest systemic type of amyloidosis to be described. It was discovered in patients with nephrotic syndrome and renal failure and is characterized by amyloid deposition in glomeruli, renal vessels, and interstitium. Clinical and pathological features of earlier phases of this type of amyloidosis have yet to be determined.
