Abstract provided by Publisher
 
Multiple myeloma represents malignant disorder of plasma
cells. Tumour extension is primarily seen within the
bone and bone marrow, despite widespread distribution
of plasma cells in the body. Metastatic deposits outside
bone marrow (extramedullary) are uncommon even in
advanced multiple myeloma. Involvement of pulmonary
parenchyma by myeloma cells either as plasmacytoma or
as a pulmonary infiltrate is rare and is related to aggressive
terminal phase of the disease. We are reporting a
case of multiple myeloma with a pulmonary parenchymal
mass as the initial presenting manifestation
