Abstract

We present a unique case of a benign pancreatic lesion which was positive for amyloid in a 55-year-old female patient without systemic amyloidosis. Further testing revealed islet-type amyloid polypeptide (or amylin), a protein found in various diseases such as diabetes, insulinoma and pancreatic adenocarcinoma-none of which was seen in our patient.
