DUQUE, Mauricio et al. Cardiac amyloidosis. Rev. Colom. Cardiol. [online]. 2009, vol.16, n.3, pp.118-127. ISSN 0120-5633.

Cardiac amyloidosis is a manifestation of a group of systemic diseases, known as amyloidosis. It is considered an important cause of infiltrative diseases that may be responsible for both the heart and other organs’ involvement. Given the progress in the understanding of the pathophysiology of the disease, the recognition of its primary and secondary causes and the new therapeutic options, a typical case of cardiac involvement is described and a review of the subject that covers the great majority of topics related to primary amyloidosis with cardiac involvement is made.

Palavras-chave : restrictive cardiomyopathy; cardiac amyloidosis; heart failure.
