Description

Only two cases of beta(2)-microglobulin amyloid tumors involving the buttocks have been reported in the world literature. We report a case of bilateral buttock amyloid tumors with associated carpal tunnel syndrome and pathologic fracture involving the femoral head. This unusual local bilateral manifestation of the beta(2)-microglobulin amyloidosis develops late in the course of hemodialysis and may be initiated by chronic trauma.
