    Difficulties may arise in the diagnosis of patients with clinical features suggestive of plasma cell dyscrasia-related amyloidosis (amyloidosis L), but without evidence of a paraprotein. We have employed gene rearrangement methodology to demonstrate the clonality of bone marrow cells not only in...

    Plasma cell dyscrasias are immunosecretory disorders that can lead to hematological malignancies such as Multiple Myeloma (MM). MM accounts for 15% of all hematologic cancers, and those diagnosed with MM typically become severely ill and have a low life expectancy. Monoclonal immunoglobulin Free...

    Primary light chain-associated amyloidosis (AL) is a plasma cell dyscrasia that causes morbidity via systemic tissue deposition of monoclonal light chains in the form of fibrils (amyloid). It is the most common form of systemic amyloidosis in Western countries and is rapidly fatal. Knowledge of...

    Clinical outcomes of patients with AL amyloidosis treated with high-dose melphalan and stem cell transplantation (HDM/SCT) are tightly linked to the achievement of a hematologic complete response (HCR). We conducted a prospective trial to determine whether a second cycle of HDM/SCT could induce...

    Scleredema (also called scleredema of Buschke) is a fibromucinous connective tissue disorder of unknown cause that belongs to a group of scleroderma-like disorders. We report the case of a 64-year-old lady with long-standing scleredema, associated with a paraprotein, and progressing to multiple...
