INTRODUCTION: Amyloidosis is a systemic disease involving the deposition of amyloid protein in various body organs and structures. The literature describing the relationship between amyloidosis and sleep disordered breathing is sparse. We present a case of a lady with severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) secondary to macroglossia. Although her symptoms were managed with continuous positive airway pressure therapy (CPAP), there were significant challenges associated with continuance of therapy.
