In brief: Deposit of amyloid
Amyloid are types of protein that can be deposited in your body.
These can occur secondary to a variety of illness and why this happened is still not completely understood. It depends what the locations of the amyloid are as to how the amyloid effects a person. What ever else teh man has may be related tothis diagnosis.
