Amyloid A (AA) amyloidosis is a well-known consequence of chronic inflammatory diseases in which elevated plasma concentrations of serum amyloid A result in amyloid aggregation and organ damage. In this issue, Sikora et al. report, for the first time, an inherited form of AA amyloidosis occurring in the absence of systemic inflammation. This finding may provide novel insights into the pathogenesis of AA amyloidosis, allowing researchers to further dissect the role of inflammation from that of serum amyloid A.
