Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) is a plasma cell disorder,that occurs in 3% of the population aged more than 50 years, and is the commonest among plasma cell dyscrasias.1,2 The hallmark of Monoclonal gammopathies is the expansion of a single clone of plasma cells, which yields a homogeneous monoclonal protein (M-protein/M-component or paraprotein).

In contrast to the latter reports that showed most patients had monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS), one of our patients was diagnosed with C3GP just after the diagnosis of symptomatic MM and a second patient evolved from smoldering to symptomatic myeloma a few years after the diagnosis of MPGN (retrospectively reviewed and confirmed as C3GP).
