Amyloidomas are benign tumorlike lesions consisting of localized deposits of amyloid and are the rarest form in the group of amyloidosis-related lesions. Diagnosis requires special stains; therefore, a high degree of suspicion for this disease is required. In this review, we describe the imaging features of amyloidomas involving the intracranial compartment, head and neck, and spine. We also discuss the differential diagnosis and briefly review the pertinent literature.
