Abstract

Medical conditions that can cause new onset of mania may be overlooked, leading to treatment delays. The authors seek to increase awareness of multiple myeloma as a possible cause of secondary mania. The authors report on new-onset mania in a 59-year-old woman who after further medical investigation was found to have stage III multiple myeloma. Palliative treatment for multiple myeloma resulted in a decrease in the patient's manic symptoms and stabilizationof the medical condition. Recognition of multiple myeloma as a cause of secondary mania will facilitate proper treatment and prevent advancement of the disease.
