BOVONE, Nora S et al. Mieloma IgE: Dificultades de laboratorio para su tipificación. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2014, vol.74, n.6, pp.472-473. ISSN 0025-7680.

The IgE multiple myeloma is a rare neoplasm of plasma cell accounting for 0.01% of all plasma cell dyscrasias. They are generally of more aggressive development and to date there are no more than 50 cases published in current literature. Laboratory studies are, in these cases, essential for the classification of the monoclonal component in serum and urine. The aim of this presentation is to report a patient diagnosed with IgE myeloma and to point out that the laboratory difficulties noted in these rare cases can lead to an erroneous report.

Keywords : Myeloma; Monoclonal component; Clinical laboratory.
