PAMO, Oscar G.; CUMPA, Robert  and  CHIAN, César. Compression of the lumbosacral plexus by light chain lambda plasmacytoma : multiple mieloma. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2015, vol.26, n.2, pp.98-102. ISSN 1018-130X.

A 51 year-old woman developed paraparesis, a palpable abdominal mass and weight loss during the last four months. A mass that was destroying the 5th lumbar vertebra and invading the adjacent soft tissues was found. A monoclonal gamopathy pattern in serum due to light chain type lambda was shown. The patient received radiation plus chemotherapy. She was discharged with amelioration of paraparesis.

Keywords : Plasmacytoma; multiple myeloma; monoclonal gammopathy; light chain; vertebral compression.
