Multiple Myeloma Associated with Thrombocytopenia Caused by Immunological Destruction

Herein we report a case of multiple myeloma (MM) with thrombocytopenia associated with a shortened half-life of platelets and improvement following splenectomy, with a transient increase in platelet counts as a result of chemotherapy including predonisolone (PSL). This thrombocytopenia may have been caused by immunological destruction of platelets related to the immunoglobulin produced by myeloma cells. We also discuss previously reported cases resembling the present patient.
