Only 10% of people diagnosed with multiple myeloma are under 50, and 2% of people are under the age of 40. Here we present the case of a 24-year-old female admitted to the hospital for recurrent genital infections, severe anemia and a normal phosphocalcique balance. The myelogram studies revealed normochromic normocytic non-regenerative anemia, as well as a 12% marrow infiltration by abnormal plasma cells. Immunological analysis by immunofixation revealed a homogeneous band in the gamma-globulin zone. After the 5th chemotherapy cycle, the 6-month follow-up assessment showed complete remission.
