Hepatic Amyloidosis is a disease where the liver (and sometimes other organs) become infiltrated with  aggregated insoluble proteins in "beta-pleated sheets".  There are many reported cases in captive chimpanzees and other nonhuman primate species.   The disease appears to be less common in humans.
