Name Multiple Myeloma
Synonyms AL AMYLOIDOSIS, INCLUDED | AL, INCLUDED | AMYLOIDOSIS, SYSTEMIC, INCLUDED | Cell Myeloma, Plasma | Cell Myelomas, Plasma | Disease, Kahler | Kahler Disease | Multiple Myelomas | Myeloma Multiple | Myeloma-Multiple | Myeloma, Multiple | Myeloma-Multiples | Myeloma, Plasma Cell | Myeloma, Plasma-Cell | Myelomas, Multiple | Myelomas, Plasma Cell | Myelomas, Plasma-Cell | Myelomatoses | Myelomatosis | Plasma Cell Myeloma | Plasma-Cell Myeloma | Plasma Cell Myelomas | Plasma-Cell Myelomas
Definition A malignancy of mature PLASMA CELLS engaging in monoclonal immunoglobulin production. It is characterized by hyperglobulinemia, excess Bence-Jones proteins (free monoclonal IMMUNOGLOBULIN LIGHT CHAINS) in the urine, skeletal destruction, bone pain, and fractures. Other features include ANEMIA; HYPERCALCEMIA; and RENAL INSUFFICIENCY.
