Several publications have raised the hypothesis of a causal link between renal cancer and multiple myeloma. Nevertheless, this hypothesis remains insufficiently explored because of the limited size of the series. Possible explanations include common genetic abnormalities, environmental exposures, or cancer-induced immune system deregulations that predispose to second malignancy.We report an original case of stage IIIA kappa light chain myeloma occurring in 55-year-old man operated four years ago for pT2N0M0 clear cell carcinoma of the left kidney.
