The Congo Red staining showing characteristic birefringence (usually described as apple green) is indicative of amyloid (FA2020 p212). Her findings are characteristic of secondary amyloidosis with serum amyloid A which can cause restrictive cardiomyopathy and nephrotic syndrome and is associated with rheumatoid arthritis.

Amyloid protein composition is misfolded aggregates of beta-pleated sheets.

High hydroxyproline and multiple disulfide cross-links are for collagen protein.
