Primary amyloidosis is an uncommon and devastating disease characterized by extracellular tissue deposition of insoluble amyloid fibrillar monoclonal light chains. The disease primarily affects the heart and kidneys and rarely presents with primary hepatic involvement. We report a case of a previously healthy 54-year-old patient with primary systemic amyloidosis presenting as liver failure.
