Abstract

Multiple Myeloma [MM] is a rare monoclonal malignant proliferation of plasma cells in the bone marrow that results in osteolytic lesions in the vertebrae, ribs, skull and jaw with typical presentation of “punched out” in appearance. It occurs more frequently in males with an average age of 60 years. Here we report such peculiar 2 cases with typical radiographical presentation of the lesion involving multiple bones with variable serological presentations.
