Abstract

Purpose: To report a case of bilateral Roth spots as an initial presentation of multiple myeloma in a previously healthy patient.

Observations: A middle-aged man presented to the emergency department complaining of acute visual loss on the left eye one day before the consultation developing a central scotoma. The patient denied any medical history. Fundus evaluation showed multiple Roth spots and diagnostic studies were conclusive for multiple myeloma.

Conclusions and Importance: There are several ophthalmological signs and symptoms that can lead us to life threatening conditions. Recognition of these findings can help diagnose systemic diseases earlier and improve life expectancy.

Keywords: Multiple Myeloma; Roth Spots
