Posted by e-Medical PPT Tuesday, September 28, 2010
In multiple myeloma renal failure may develop both acutely and chronically. It is commonly due to hypercalcemia.It may also be due to tubular damage from excretion of light chains, also called Bence Jones proteins, which can manifest as the Fanconi syndrome (type II renal tubular acidosis). Other causes include glomerular deposition of amyloid, hyperuricemia, recurrent infections (pyelonephritis), and local infiltration of tumor cells.
