    The clinical and pathological findings in a case of amyloidosis localized to the lower respiratory tract are described.

The vascular areas in some amyloid deposits were considered to be secondary to pre-existing infection. The fine structure of the amyloid conforms to that of amyloid at other sites in man and in experimental animals.
