The deposit of a hyaline material of a glycoproteid nature in the interstitial tissue of arteries, the kidney, ovary, and myocardium, and also in granulomata and the parenchymatous cells of various organs and malignant tumors. The material differs from amyloid in showing no specific reaction with iodin.
The deposit of a clear, transparent homogeneous material between the connective tissue of the thyroid gland, of the kidney in chronic interstitial nephritis, and of the corpus luteum, and as well as in tubercles, in gummata, in malignant tumors. It is also found in the adventitia of small arteries and the walls of capillaries. The deposit is probably of glycoproteid nature.
