AQUINO VALDOVINOS, Alicia Maria; ACOSTA COLMAN, Maria Isabel; BOGGINO, Hugo  e  DUARTE MUSSI DE LATERZA, Margarita. Young patient with dysphonia: a case of unusual Amyloidosis. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2015, vol.13, n.2, pp.102-106. ISSN 1812-9528.

Amyloidosis is a disease characterized by extracellular deposition of fibrils made of low molecular weight subunits of a variety of proteins. It can be classified according to its distribution and the fibrillar protein constituent. The prevalence varies by the geographical area studied and the prognosis depends on the tissue or organ concerned. We present the case of a young man with longstanding dysphonia without other accompanying symptoms whose nasofibroscopy showed a tumor in the laryngeal region. In the pathological material, hyaline congophillic material compatible with amyloid was observed. A rectal biopsy was also performed and amyloid material was also observed. Due to the few symptoms and the absence of organ involvement that compromises life, we opted for a conservative management in this patient.

Palavras-chave : systemic amyloidosis; dysphonia IDEM; larynx.
