Multiple myeloma involves lungs rarely but when it does, it may be difficult to differentiate it from other more common primary lung parenchymal, pleural diseases, tumours or metastatic diseases. This is a case report of a patient who developed clinical features of acute respiratory distress syndrome secondary to multiple myeloma with involvement of lung parenchyma by neoplastic plasma cells.
