Multiple well-circumscribed bone lytic lesions.
This patient was diagnosed with multiple multiple myeloma. This neoplasia results from the monoclonal proliferation of malignant plasma cells which produce immunoglobulins (commonly IgG) and infiltrate haemopoietic locations.
Disseminated multiple myeloma has two common radiological appearances:
- numerous, well circumscribed lytic bone lesions: more common (like this case)
- generalised osteopaenia: less common
