Abstract:

The deposition of amyloid as a distinct, clinically apparent mass is uncommon particularly in the soft tissues. There have been no previously published case reports of abdominal wall involvement; thereby we are describing a case of AA amyloidoma which presented as an abdominal wall abscess without any evidence of systemic disease. The clinical and radiological findings suggested soft tissue abscess likely cysticercosis or a neoplastic process. This case demonstrates the importance of considering the possibility of amyloidoma in the differential diagnosis of soft tissue lesions.
