Introduction - Investigation of renal damage in connection with monoclonal gammopathies continues to be in the forefront of nephrological research. Case report - Natural history of a patient who had underwent a renal transplantation due to renal insufficiency, and in whom multiple myeloma was diagnosed two years before his death is discussed. The cause of death could be traced to several severe syndromes, however the contribution of IgD-lambda monoclonal gammopathy to the 'basic syndrome' -(renal dysfunction) could not be clearly established; Conclusion - The end-stage renal disease observed was most likely a consequence of chronic glomerulonephritis, and multiple myeloma established with immunochemical analysis and histology was the consequence of post-transplantation plasma cell dyscrasia in connection with the transplantation method.
