Multiple myeloma is the second most common neoplastic disease of lymphoid tissue in adults. However, its atypical non secretory form, is quite rare. We present a case of 70 year old male with atypical chest pain and nephrotic range proteinuria fi nally diagnosed as non secretory myeloma who did not present any of characteristic fi ndings when admitted to hospital. Despite the unusual course the diagnosis was established quickly enough to provide a proper treatment. One should remember that occasionally patients do not match typical criteria necessary for diagnosing a disease.
