AbstractThis is a case report of myeloma associated systemic amyloidosis in a 45 years old man. The patient presented with asymptomatic plaques and papules around the eyes, nostrils, anus, inguinal region and tongue. Purpuric lesions were noticed on and off over the lesions. When thorough investigations were undertaken they revealed multiple myeloma. Histopathology with amyloid stain positivity and bone marrow examination confirmed the diagnosis.
