Abstract

Multiple myeloma is a malignant monoclonal plasma cell disorder occurring predominantly in the elderly population. Outcomes of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) are worse in elderly, persons with comorbid conditions such as malignancy and patients who are on immunosuppressive therapy. Here we report a case, in which COVID-19 unravelled the diagnosis of multiple myeloma and myeloma cast nephropathy. Bortezomib-based two drug induction immunosuppression, was given during the peak of second wave of COVID-19, and it resulted in clinical improvement and partial remission of multiple myeloma.

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

Guidelines for induction immunosuppression treatment of hematologic malignancies such as myeloma are not available for a recently recovered patient from COVID-19. Post-COVID status should not discourage clinicians from administering induction immunosuppression for treatment for multiple myeloma.
