    Abstract

    Macular amyloidosis is a relatively common cutaneous disease in Asia and the Middle East. It is characterized by a reticulated or rippled pattern of pigmentation mostly in the upper back. This study was performed not only to determine the disease, sex and age distribution but also to evaluate its risk factors and the frequency among the patients in the dermatology clinic. In this study, 100 macular amyloidosis patients were evaluated in a period of 4 years. The sex ratio (female:male) of the patients was 9:1, and the mean age of the female patients was higher than that of the males. We found no evidence of any other associated risk factors.
