Abstract

Taste acuity in 20 subjects affected by AL amyloidosis without oral complications was investigated by threshold determination. Sixteen cases did not recognize one or more fundamental tastes. Sour was the most frequently lost taste, as it was not recognized by 10 out of 20 cases. So, sensorial neuropathy, altering taste generation and/or transmission, seems frequently associated to AL amyloidosis. Further researches will show if taste losses realize typical symptomatic features in this disease.
