Abstract

Involvement of the abdominal organs has variable presentations mostly without specific findings. The objective of this pictorial essay was to illustrate the computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of abdominal involvement in systemic amyloidosis. Heterogeneous appearance of the liver, periportal involvement, diffuse low signal intensity of spleen on T2-weighted MRI, and thickened bowel wall may be helpful imaging findings when accompanied by presence or history of chronic inflammatory disease and clinical suspicion for amyloidosis.
