Both fibrillary and amyloid fibrils are typically characterized as non-branching randomly oriented fibrils which range usually between 10-20 nm and 7-12 nm, respectively. Light chain deposition disease classically shows characteristic punctate, powdery deposits within glomeruli and tubular basement membranes by electron microscopy.
