Cardiac amyloidosis in the elderly

As early as 1850, Virchow found that there was a kind of sediment between human tissue cells, which showed a starch like color reaction after contacting with iodine. Virchow calls it amyloid, and the tissue in which it is deposited is called amyloidosis. It has been proved that the so-called amyloid is actually a protein composed of different components. Therefore, it is more appropriate to call it amyloid.
