Abstract

Amyloidosis is characterized by the deposition of fibrillar proteins by either plasma cells or derived from circulating proteins, the former especially involved in pathogenesis of localised amyloidosis. We describe a case of primary localised amyloidosis involving the urethra, in a 54-year-old diabetic patient, presenting with symptoms of stricture. Though a rare cause, in a patient with clinical diagnosis of urethral stricture, one of the differential diagnosis to be ruled out is primary urethral amyloidosis.
