A case of IgD monoclonal gammopathy showing clinical and laboratory stability after a follow-up of 15 years
IgD monoclonal gammopathies represent a rare subset of the universe of monoclonal immunoglobulin abnormalities. They are often characterized by a clinically progressive myelomatous behaviour and by peculiar laboratory aspects. We present here a case of IgD monoclonal gammopathy, detected in a 44-years old woman, which was stable from a clinical and laboratory point of view for 15 years. This case represents a quite unusual figure of a very long lasting IgD monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance.
