Descriptor mieloma múltiple
Entry term(s) mieloma de células plasmáticas
Scope note: Tumor maligno de CÉLULAS PLASMÁTICAS maduras, productoras de inmunoglobulinas. Se caracteriza por hiperglobulinemia, excesiva producción de proteína de Bence-Jones (CADENAS LIGERAS DE INMUNOGLOBULINA libres, monoclonales) en la orina, destrucción ósea, dolor óseo y fracturas. Otras características son ANEMIA, HIPERCALCEMIA e INSUFICIENCIA RENAL.

Scope note: A malignancy of mature PLASMA CELLS engaging in monoclonal immunoglobulin production. It is characterized by hyperglobulinemia, excess Bence-Jones proteins (free monoclonal IMMUNOGLOBULIN LIGHT CHAINS) in the urine, skeletal destruction, bone pain, and fractures. Other features include ANEMIA; HYPERCALCEMIA; and RENAL INSUFFICIENCY.
