Section of a needle biopsy of bone marrow from a patient with marrow involvement by multiple myeloma. A. Numerous plasma cells have replaced most of the marrow; a few fat cells remain. B and C. Same case after staining for immunoglobulin light chains by the immunoperoxidase technique. In B, staining with anti-kappa reveals a positive reaction (black) in the plasma cells, whereas in C, staining with anti-lambda shows no reactivity. This demonstrates the monoclonal nature of this neoplasm. An IgA-kappa monoclonal spike was detected in serum. (From Chandrasoma P, Taylor CR. Concise Pathology. 3rd ed. www.accessmedicine.com.

A 62-year-old female that is retired, complains of a recent onset of left-sided back pain that radiates from her left lower scapula area down the left side of her back and into her left leg. The pain began about 5 weeks ago after she was hospitalized for pneumonia. She was admitted for 3 weeks. She did not receive her monthly chemotherapy treatment during this time.

The patient has a moderately kyphotic posture with a flattened lumbar curve. The thoracic and lumbar paraspinals are tight with greater tightness in the right thoracic paraspinals. Strength is WNL in bilateral UE except for left scapular muscle weakness. She has LE weakness in left hip muscles (abduction and extension), as well as bilateral ankle plantar flexion (PF). She is unable to perform unilateral heel raise on right or left. She complains of increased pain with UE and LE testing. The pain complaint was greater with UE testing, particularly shoulder MMT. She presents with postural muscle ...
