NIETO-RIOS, John Fredy et al. Three cases of de novo multiple myeloma after kidney transplantation. Biomédica [online]. 2016, vol.36, n.4, pp.498-503. ISSN 0120-4157.

Light chain-associated kidney compromise is frequent in patients with monoclonal gammopathies; it affects the glomeruli or the tubules, and its most common cause is multiple myeloma. It may develop after a kidney transplant due to recurrence of a preexisting multiple myeloma or it can be a de novo disease manifesting as graft dysfunction and proteinuria. A kidney biopsy is always necessary to confirm the diagnosis.
