INTRODUCTION Light chain deposition disease (LCDD) can involve the heart and cause severe heart failure. Cardiac involvement is usually described in the advanced stages of the disease. We report the case of a woman in whom restrictive cardiomyopathy due to LCDD presented with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. CASE PRESENTATION A 55-year-old woman was(More)
We assessed the combined use of serum protein electrophoresis (SPE) and nephelometric measurement of immunoglobulin heavy- and light-chain components for detecting serum monoclonal immunoglobulins (monoclonal components, MC) in 4788 unselected samples from 4173 patients. MC were detected in 514 samples from 390 patients. In 356 these were detected by SPE;(More)
We describe a computer algorithm for classifying serum monoclonal proteins (MC) based on serum protein electrophoresis (SPE) and the automated measurement of kappa and lambda light chains and IgG, IgA, and IgM. We developed the algorithm by using a large database of unselected samples containing MC collected in a multicenter study. The performance of the(More)
