Abstract

Nodular cutaneous amyloidosis (NCA), the least common form of primary cutaneous amyloidosis, is characterized clinically by waxy, purpuric plaques and nodules and histologically by amyloid deposits in the dermis and subcutaneous tissue. We present a patient who developed multiple, non-contiguous NCA lesions over a three year period without evidence of systemic disease. We reviewed the literature and found few other cases of this unusual presentation.
