SOLIS-DE LA ROSA, F. et al. Nephropathy due to multiple myeloma. Med. interna Méx. [online]. 2017, vol.33, n.5, pp.682-689. ISSN 0186-4866.

Much of the patients with multiple myeloma present with signs and symptoms related to plasma cells infiltration or by the excess of kappa light chains. Kidney disease is common and has a heterogeneous pathophysiology that may involve different mechanisms. We present the case of a patient with suspected multiple myeloma because of low back pain, renal failure, anemia and hypercalcemia; without hipergammaglobulinemia in the electrophoresis, in whom the diagnosis was confirmed by the presence of kappa chains light in renal tissue; a review of current literature is made.

Keywords : multiple myeloma; nephropathy.
