Abstract


Multiple myeloma is usually associated with neurological features like peripheral neuropathy and compressive myelopathy. It is unusual for multiple myeloma to present with multiple cranial nerve palsies. We report a case of multiple myeloma with an extramedullary plasmacytoma in the maxillary antrum, which resulted in multiple cranial nerve palsies. The patient was diagnosed to have IgG λ subtype in stage II according to the international staging system (ISS). The patient did not respond to a combination of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
