    Abstract

    A 69 yr old man with persistent anemia had multiple myeloma with an IgE type kappa M component and Bence Jones proteinuria. Bone X rays revealed occasional lytic lesions associated with a diffuse sclerotic reaction throughout the skeleton. Special bone histologic studies utilizing tetracycline labeling, undecalcified sections, and microradiography confirmed active osteoblastic activity. This case is compared with the 4 (allegedly) previously reported cases of IgE myeloma, one of which also had osteosclerosis.
