GONZALEZ, Guido Ricardo; NAVARRO, Ana María; ZAMBRANO, Ángela Regina e ARRUNATEGUI, Ana María. Nodular hepatic lesions secondary to myeloma IgA presenting as fever of unknown origin. Biomédica [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.4, pp. 478-481. ISSN 0120-4157.
A 45 year old male presented with IgA multiple myeloma s/p (status post) autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation; and with a history of six weeks of fever and constitutional symptoms. Liver tests showed an infiltrative pattern, with ultrasound evidence of multiple nodular lesions. A laparoscopic biopsy identified circumscribed myeloma foci. This is the first reported case of myeloma nodular liver lesions causing a fever of unknown origin.
