Abstract

The clinical and roentgenographic presentation of multiple myeloma metastatic to the lung is quite variable. An endobronchial lesion is described infrequently. It is often difficult to separate metastatic myeloma from the more benign endobronchial plasmacytoma. We present two cases of myeloma presenting with hemoptysis. Fiberoptic bronchoscopy was diagnostic of myeloma by endobronchial biopsy in one case and by transbronchial biopsy in the other.
