Intranuclear inclusions in Bence Jones lambda plasma cell myeloma.
A patient with plasma cell myeloma producing only Bence Jones lambda protein was found to have pale intranuclear inclusions in the majority of the bone marrow plasma cells. These inclusions, previously undescribed in myeloma patients producing only Bence Jones protein, contained Bence Jones lambda protein, were non-electron dense, bound by a single membrane, and contained no cytoplasmic structures. Intracytoplasmic inclusions were not present, and the perinuclear cistern was not dilated. Thus, the inclusions may represent intranuclear protein synthesis with anomalous release in the abnormal cells.
