Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Abstract

Light chain amyloidosis is one of the clonal plasma cell disorders characterized by the accumulation of misfolded light chain in tissues and organs. It may affect many organs and tissues like kidney, heart, nervous system, intestinal systems. Symptoms may mimic several diseases. The natural history of the disease, involvement of other organs and treatment options vary significantly based on the origin of the protein. In amyloid light-chain (AL) amyloidosis, amyloid protein is derived from immunoglobulin light chains and most often involves the kidneys and the heart. Cardiac amyloidosis is important in terms of causing intracardiac thrombus and increases the risk of thromboembolic complications as stroke. We discussed a 55-year-old patient with known cardiac involvement of systemic amyloidosis who presented to an emergency department with loss of consciousness and progressive left-sided weakness and had the diagnosis of acute ischemic stroke.

Keywords: Acute ischemic stroke; cardiac amyloidosis; light chain amyloidosis
