MYELOMA

Not myeloma


Hmm. this gets tricky, as myeloma was the pre-existing condition that caused the patient to die, but it wasn't the direct cause of death (1a), nor was it the immediately underlying cause (1b). However, myeloma produces an excess of IgG light chain proteins - amyloid - which are either excreted in the urine or deposited in body organs. Could anything to do with this possibly cause the patient to die?

Try again.
