Renal transplantation in multiple myeloma. A case report.


A patient with plasma cell myeloma presented in severe renal failure but was otherwise considered a good risk candidate for chemotherapy. Supported by hemodialysis she received intensive cyclophosphamide chemotherapy, resulting in a stabilization of all overt manifestations of her disease except for the renal failure. After 11 1/2 months of follow-up without showing any further progression of the myeloma process, she received a successful cadaveric renal transplant, which functioned well until the time of her death 15 months later. No evidence of recurrent myeloma kidney disease was found at postmortem examination.
