A serum multiple monoclonal component (MC) is very rare. We here report 6 patients with 3 MCs. The triple MC was detected in all of them by immunofixation. 2/6 patients did not present hematological or oncological associated disease, while in the remaining 4, Waldenström macroglobulinaemia (2 cases), Polycythemia Vera and non-Hodgkin lymphoma were diagnosed. Of the 49 global patients reported in the literature (6+43), 64.6% had a lymphoproliferative disorder and only in 3 cases there was no associated disease. Therefore, the detection of such laboratory evidence should propel physicians to a deeper investigation.
