Abstract

Systemic amyloidosis results in diffuse deposition of amyloid proteins in various organs. Localized deposits in the form of nodules also occur but are rare in the gastrointestinal tract. A localized amyloid deposit in the rectum that was clinically indistinguishable from carcinoma of the rectum or prostate is described.
