Abstract: Isolated Cardiac amyloidosis is an obscure cause of heart failure. Although other causes of heart failure and other forms of amyloidosis have been recognized and discussed in detail, this entity is not frequently encountered. This case involves an 84 year old male who presented with fatigue, atrial fibrillation and a low ejection fraction. Further evaluation with cardiac biopsy resulted in the diagnosis of isolated cardiac amyloidosis; there was no sign of amyloid in the abdominal fat pad biopsy or other organs. We would like to focus this paper on isolated cardiac amyloidosis and its clinical significance.
