Nodular primary localized cutaneous amyloidosis: immunohistochemical evaluation and treatment with the carbon dioxide laser.

Nodular primary localized cutaneous amyloidosis is an uncommon disorder for which there is no consistently satisfactory treatment. The amyloid fibrils are thought to have an immunoglobulin light chain derivation and systemic involvement must be excluded in all cases. We report a patient with a large scalp lesion of nodular primary localized cutaneous amyloidosis whose immunohistochemical evaluation revealed lambda light chain deposits and who thus far has no apparent systemic involvement. The lesion was treated by the carbon dioxide (CO2) laser with excellent cosmetic results and minimal morbidity.
