Abstract

We report a case of a 53-year-old woman who presented with anemia and abnormal uterine bleeding. Endometrial and cervical biopsies revealed infiltration by large atypical cells, which were characterized as neoplastic plasma cells. Further investigations revealed systemic plasma cell dyscrasia (i.e., plasma cell myeloma). We therefore report a case of plasma cell myeloma, initially presenting as abnormal uterine bleeding.
