SOUZA, Daniella Abbruzzini Ferreira de et al. Multiple myeloma with cutaneous plasmocytomas. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2004, vol.79, n.5, pp.581-585. ISSN 0365-0596.

Multiple myeloma is a malignant proliferation of plasma cells which infiltrate bone marrow; cutaneous involvement with plasma cell neoplasms is uncommon, and may be nonspecific or specific. The specific dermatologic lesions arise either as a direct extension from the underlying bone lesions or by metastatic accumulation in the form of nodules and plaques. The authors report the case of a 59-year-old male patient with multiple myeloma, who developed cutaneous plasmacytomas (violaceous nodules on the limbs) seven months after the disease diagnosis.

Keywords : skin manifestations; multiple myeloma; plasmacytoma.
