Can multiple myeloma cause brain lesions?

While multiple myeloma primarily affects bone marrow, it’s possible, although rare, for the disease to manifest outside the marrow, forming plasmacytomas in various sites. However, brain involvement remains exceedingly uncommon. If brain lesions are observed in a myeloma patient, it’s essential to consider other potential causes, including metastasis from another primary cancer, infections or other neurological conditions. Any neurological symptoms or suspicious findings on imaging warrant thorough evaluation to determine their origin and plan appropriate treatment.
