Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia was studied in a 46 year old Iranian male with anemia, bleeding, ecchymose and splenomegaly. The diagnosis of Macroglobulinemia was established by the presence of very high level of IgM paraprotein in sera which was detectable by immunoelectrophoresis and rocket immunoelectrophoresis, and by the presence of bone marrow infiltration of plasmocytes. Family studies revealed a high IgM level in one of the patient's daughters.
