NIH Rare Diseases:42 Hereditary amyloidosis refers to a group of inherited conditions that make up one of the three major subtypes of amyloidosis. hereditary amyloidosis is characterized by the deposit of a specific type of protein called amyloid in multiple organs of the body where it should not be, which causes disruption organ tissue structure and function. each type of hereditary amyloidosis is the result of a mutation in a specific protein. the most common type of hereditary amyloidosis is transthyretin amyloidosis, a condition in which the amyloid deposits are most often made up of the transthyretin protein which is made in the liver. the signs and symptoms of transthyretin amyloidosis (a ttr) may include peripheral neuropathy; cardiomyopathy; or gastrointestinal, kidney, or eye problems. other examples of hereditary amyloidosis include, but are not limited to, apolipoprotein ai amyloidosis (a apoai), gelsolin amyloidosis (a gel), lysozyme amyloidosis (a lys), cystatin c amyloidosis (a cys), fibrinogen aα-chain amyloidosis (a fib), and apolipoprotein aii amyloidosis (a apoaii). last updated: 9/16/2011

MalaCards: Hereditary Amyloidosis, also known as amyloidosis hereditary, is related to amyloidosis and familial visceral amyloidosis. An important gene associated with Hereditary Amyloidosis is TTR (transthyretin), and among its related pathways are Packaging Of Telomere Ends and FOXA2 and FOXA3 transcription factor networks. The compounds trifluoroethanol and thioflavin t have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include eye, kidney and liver, and related mouse phenotype homeostasis/metabolism.
