Familial renal amyloidosis (or familial visceral amyloidosis, or hereditary amyloid nephropathy) is a form of amyloidosis primarily presenting in the kidney.[1]

It is associated with fibrinogen alpha chain,[2] apolipoprotein A1,[3] and lysozyme.[4][5]

It is also known as "Ostertag" type, after B. Ostertag, who characterized it in 1932 and 1950.[6][7]
