Here we present a patient with multiple myeloma course. The first clinical manifestation was superior vena cava syndrome due to a huge sternal plasmocytoma. The patient was treated with a combination of high dose radiotherapy and autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation. We suggest careful evaluation of these patients with respect to aggressive therapy.
