Abstract

This chapter presents a series of multiple choice questions and answers and case studies on Waldenström's macroglobulinemia (WM). It commences with a discourse on WM. The chapter talks about the genetic changes associated with WM, response to treatment measured, and different standard and novel therapies in WM. It analyzes whether autologous stem cell transplantation should be a front-line option. The chapter concludes with a discussion on cryoglobulinemia and related autoimmune disorders in WM. Risk of amyloid light-chain (AL) amyloidosis, immunoglobulin M (IgM)-related neurologic manifestations and survivorship issues in W4M are also discussed.
