Multiple Myeloma and Other Plasma Cell Neoplasms PDQ

Multiple Myeloma and Other Plasma Cell Neoplasms (PDQ®): Treatment
Multiple myeloma is a systemic malignancy of plasma cells that is highly treatable but rarely curable. It is potentially curable when it presents as a solitary plasmacytoma of bone or as an extramedullary plasmacytoma. The median survival in the prechemotherapy era was...

Multiple Myeloma Wikibooks

Location: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Diagnostic_Radiology/Musculoskeletal_Imaging/Tumors_Basic/Multiple_Myel ...

Multiple Myeloma is a neoplasm of differentiated plasma cells resulting from malignant clonal expansion and overproduction of monoclonal immunoglobulins. Common complications include recurrent bacterial infections, anemia, osteolytic lesions and renal insufficiency.

Myeloma eMedicine Orthopedics

Location: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1256274-overview

Multiple myeloma (MM) is characterized by neoplastic proliferation of plasma cells involving more than 10% of the bone marrow. The disease results in the production of monoclonal immunoglobulins, which may be identified with serum protein electrophoresis (SPEP) or urine protein electrophoresis (UPEP). Plasma-cell proliferation causes extensive skeletal destruction with osteolytic...

Pathogenesis and Management of Myeloma Bone Disease

Location: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/708401

Osteolytic bone disease is a frequent complication of multiple myeloma, resulting in skeletal complications that are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. It is the result of increased activity of osteoclasts that is not followed by reactive bone formation by osteoblasts. Recent studies have revealed novel molecules and pathways...

Radiology Cases Myeloma Plasmacytoma LSBU

Location: http://myweb.lsbu.ac.uk/dirt/museum/p4-345.html

Plasmacytoma amd multiple myeloma are both patterns of bone destruction, produced by an accumulation of plasma cells. The disease occurs in late middle age with a peak incidence at 60 years. Males are more likely to be affected, 2:1. The single mass of plasmacytoma is lytic and expands the bone...
