We report a case of a 51-year-old male with minimal past medical history who presented to his primary care provider with nausea, vomiting and constipation in the outpatient setting. Concomitantly, he was found to have a renal injury, anemia and lytic lesions which were confirmed to be due to multiple myeloma. After further investigation of the gastrointestinal symptoms, he was diagnosed with gastroparesis. This case represents an unusual presentation of gastroparesis, diagnosed at the same time as multiple myeloma, for which there has yet to be a published association. Here we detail the case, review gastric emptying physiology, the diagnostic criteria for gastroparesis and hypothesize the connection if it might have with multiple myeloma.
