PMID: 35833642.


Soft-tissue amyloidomas are exceedingly rare, with only a few cases reported in the literature. There are no reports of sciatic nerve compression secondary to a soft-tissue amyloidoma. We report a unique case of a 71-year-old man with an incidentally found amyloidoma who was initially believed to have deep gluteal syndrome. He had a favorable outcome after surgical decompression.
