          Abstract

          A few cases of nephrotic syndrome with the glomerular deposition of an amyloid-like material which did not stain with Congo red have been documented. But extrarenal deposits have not been previously reported in this disease. We describe here a case of nephrotic syndrome associated with the deposition of an amyloid-like material in the liver as well as in the renal glomeruli. The deposits were made up of fibrillar structures which resembled those of amyloid when viewed through the electron microscope but they did not stain with Congo red. This is the first report of amyloidosis-like glomerulopathy with extrarenal deposits.
