    Abstract

    Two patients with generalized pustular psoriasis developed amyloidosis with a fatal outcome. It is suggested that generalized pustular psoriasis may predispose to the development of secondary amyloidosis either by prolonged stimulation of the reticuloendothelial system or through abnormal immunoglobulin synthesis.
