Detection of nodular pulmonary amyloid by PET positive scan—Deception for lung cancer
Revista Portuguesa de Pneumologia
Amyloidosis results from proteins being deposited as insoluble ␤-pleated sheets and disrupting organ function. Each precursor protein induces a separate spectrum of organ involvement, and different disease manifestations within the lung. Although autopsy findings often demonstrate amyloid deposits in various compartments of the lung, few are manifested pathologically. Amyloid lung nodules with positron emission tomography (PET) uptake are rare. We describe a rare case where PET uptake wasdoi:10.1016/j.rppnen.2012.10.005 fatcat:slgutbqnjjestgmynmn7okgoee
