Abstract

A patient with nephrotic syndrome was found to have amyloidosis secondary to an otherwise asymptomatic Crohn's disease. Resection of a major portion of the affected bowel and long-term colchicine therapy were followed by a complete clinical remission of the nephrotic syndrome, most probably due to a significant resolution of amyloidosis. The combination of resection of affected bowel segments, together with long-term colchicine therapy may offer a better prognosis than either method alone.
