IgD myeloma: immunology and ultrastructure.


A case of multiple myeloma producing IgD-M component with light chains of lambda type is reported. It involved the skeleton and was complicated by compression of the spinal cord and massive extension to the pleura. The urine contained lambda Bence Jones protein. Under the electron microscope, the neoplastic plasma cells showed dissociation between nuclear and cytoplasmic maturation.
