Multiple malignancies in the same patient are unusual. This is particularly true for patients with hematologic malignancies who have a concomitant solid tumor. We report the unexpectedly higher frequency of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) associated with plasma cell dyscrasias. We report 6 cases of RCC in our institutional database of 600 patients with plasma cell dyscrasias over the past 10 years. We discuss the possible mechanisms that predisposed these patients to a secondary malignancy.
