Plasma Cell Neoplasms
Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS)
Plasma cell myeloma (PCM)
Monoclonal immunoglobulin deposition diseases The basic genetic events that lead to plasma cell oncogenesis are similar in the different plasma cell neoplasms. Underlying genetic variations likely explain the heterogeneous clinical behavior in patients with these different disorders.
