Does multiple myeloma cause amyloidosis?

The liver is not a primary site of involvement for multiple myeloma. However, secondary effects on the liver can occur. For instance, light chain amyloidosis, where abnormal protein fragments accumulate, can affect the liver. Additionally, liver function can be impacted by some drugs used in the treatment of myeloma. It’s essential for patients to have regular liver function tests to monitor potential complications, especially during therapy.
