Abstract: 
In the present work, using Congo Red (CR) birefringence and immunofluorescence, we report for the first time the presence of SAA-amyloidosis in the stenotic aortic valve of an alkaptonuric patient. Light microscopy revealed a co-localization of ochronotic pigment and SAA-amyloid, tissue calcification, lipid oxidation, inflammation, and tissue degeneration.
