Abstract

The simultaneous occurrence of pregnancy and multiple myeloma (MM) is rare. The challenge of diagnosing MM during pregnancy is demonstrated in the case presented here. Despite the rarity of concurrent MM and pregnancy, this possibility should be considered in patients with signs and symptoms that may be attributed to MM so as not to delay the diagnosis and decision about pregnancy continuation and initiation of an appropriate and safe therapy to the mother and fetus. Treating physicians should be aware of the potential effects of MM therapies on the fetus and pregnancy outcomes.
