Since the incidence of amyloidosis is increasing, the purpose of this article is to review the imaging features of intrathoracic amyloidosis. Amyloidosis forms a heterogeneous group of disorders characterised by the extracellular deposition of a homologous protein complex. The heart is the most commonly involved organ in the chest. Respiratory amyloidal deposition is much less common and may be generalised, when it occurs as a part of a systemic disease, or it may be restricted only to the respiratory system. Although, the abnormalities are considered non-specific, recent literature suggests-especially for cardiac amyloidosis-specific patterns of abnormalities.
