Abstract

A patient with renal amyloidosis and the nephrotic syndrome consequent to extensive infected burns demonstrated both clinical resolution of the nephrotic syndrome and morphologic regression of the renal amyloid deposits over a six year period. The regression of the amyloid deposits was associated with several changes in the glomerular capillary wall resulting in a double capillary wall contour. This case indicates that deposits of amyloid in the kidney may regress and suggests a sequence of events in this resolution.
