Abstract

Nodular amyloidosis is uncommon and is due to a local production of amyloid by aberrant plasma cells. Localized bosselated plantar amyloidosis has been reported before but we present the first case to our knowledge of bilateral plantar amyloidosis. The clinical presentation as well as therapeutic options for this uncommon entity are reviewed.
