INTRODUCTION: Amyloidosis(AM) is an extracellular tissue deposition of fibrils composed of variety of proteins and have been found to occur in roughly 10% of multiple myeloma (MM) patients. Pulmonary AM is a rare disease which is caused by extracellular deposition of fibrillary proteins. Pulmonary parenchyma is an uncommon site of extramedullary involvement in MM. Only isolated cases with histological data have been reported in the literature. In our case, the pulmonary AM was the initial presentation of MM.
