Monoclonal gammopathy in prostate carcinoma: a rare phenomen
Monoclonal gammopathy is commonly associated with plasma cell dyscrasia. However, monoclonal gammopathy without bone marrow plasmacytosis in prostate carcinoma has rarely been reported. The association between the two conditions is not clearly established. The following case has been reported in the Journal of Medical Case Reports.

The authors report a case of metastatic prostate carcinoma in a 65-year-old Indian man with the unusual phenomenon of monoclonal band in gamma globulin region without evidence of bone marrow plasmacytosis.

Key takaways:-
- This case report highlights the rare association of monoclonal gammopathy with malignant prostatic carcinoma.

- Therefore, while investigating a case such as this, in an elderly male patient, one should always keep a lookout for any solid tumor foci after excluding multiple myeloma.

-Monoclonal band may be associated with solid tumor. If an elderly man presents with multiple rib erosions with monoclonal band in SPEP, always search for solid tumor after excluding multiple myeloma.
