Abstract

Amyloid tumors of the gastrointestinal tract are exceedingly rare. Two cases are presented, one in the stomach of a patient who appeared to have systemic amyloidosis and one in the colon which appears to be isolated. The treatment was surgical excision. Extensive diagnostic work‐up is required to evaluate the many various possible causes of amyloidosis.
