Brief Summary:
The purpose of this protocol is to generate a large registry of patients with AL amyloidosis.

Condition or disease
AL Amyloidosis

Detailed Description:
Thanks to this registry, it will be possible to collect data at diagnosis and during follow up, in order to be able to describe the natural history of AL amyloidosis in a real-world setting and to define and validate prognostic models, response and relapse criteria applicable at any point of the disease.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Creation of a registry of patients with AL amyloidosis [ Time Frame: 5 years ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA
It will be generated a biobank of body fluids (serum, plasma, urine) and relevant cellular (bone marrow and peripheral blood mononuclear cells) and tissue samples (bone marrow, periumbilical fat, possibly other biopsied organs) from patients with AL amyloidosis. We will obtain research samples from diagnostic leftovers of consenting patients at diagnosis and at each subsequent visit.
