Abstract

We report a patient with progressive systemic sclerosis in whom an autopsy, performed 13 years after diagnosis, revealed the presence of bronchioloalveolar carcinoma and of generalized amyloidosis. Characterization of the amyloid fibril protein suggested an immunoglobulin light chain (AL) origin.
