Abstract Purpose: To report a case of symptomatic immunogammopathy maculopathy in multiple myeloma despite lower level of IgM (<7000 mg/dl) in a non-diabetic patient. Case report: We report a 53-year-old Malay man with underlying hypertension and newly diagnosed multiple myeloma, complained of progressive blurring of vision in both eyes over 2 months. Visual acuity with best correction was 6/36 in both eyes. No relative afferent pupillary defect. Slit lamp biomicroscopy showed minimal nuclear cataract in both eyes. No evidence of cornea crystals. Funduscopic examination revealed bilateral macula neurosensory detachment with yellow-white subretinal precipitates. The retinal veins also appeared distended. Fluorescein angiography showed no evidence of macula hyperflorescence from the retinal vasculature or retinal pigment in either eye. Baseline laboratory evaluation before treatment revealed microcystic anaemia, thrombocytopenia and abnormal serum protein electrophoresis IgM Kappa paraproteinemia of 5890 mg/dl. Conclusion: Symptomatic immunogammopathy maculopathy in multiple myeloma is still possible despite lower levels of IgM (<7000 mg/dl) in a non-diabetic patient, therefore prompt treatment is necessary to prevent irreversible visual loss.
