Familial amyloid neuropathy Classification and external resources ICD-10 E85.1 ICD-9 277.3 MeSH D028227
The familial amyloid neuropathies (or familial amyloidotic neuropathies, neuropathic heredofamilial amyloidosis, familial amyloid polyneuropathy) are a rare group of autosomal dominant neuropathies of autonomic and peripheral nerves.
Due to the rareness of the other types, it is sometimes associated with transthyretin alone.
