Multiple myeloma is a clonal B-cell disease of proliferating plasma cells that rarely involves the eye. On the contrary, renal involvement is frequently seen in myeloma. At the time of diagnosis, about 30%–40% of patients with myeloma have evidence of renal impairment. There are multifactorial causes of renal impairment in multiple myeloma; however, coexistent autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) in a patient with myeloma has not been reported. We report a case of a 34-year-old female who presented with severe anemia, cataract right eye, bilateral corneal opacities, and multiple cysts in kidney and liver. She was eventually diagnosed as a case of multiple myeloma associated with ADPKD.
