Amyloid light-chain amyloidosis, myeloma and autonomic neuropathy

Systemic amyloidosis secondary to myeloma is an uncommon condition that often has an insidious onset and poses as a diagnostic challenge due to the lack of typical presenting symptoms and signs. Prompt diagnosis of amyloidosis and appropriate referral have the potential to improve outcome for these patients. Here, we report the unusual case of a man whose primary presenting complaint was of long-standing orthostatic hypotension.
