An 80-years-old-man with adult polycystic kidney disease and familial multiple myeloma that is complicated with massive pericardial effusion and dilated cardiomyopathy during the course of the disease is presented. Although no definite single genetic disorder is described, multiple myeloma cases may be seen in certain families. Environmental factors are also blamed in the etiology. Multiple myeloma may be complicated by myocardial and pericardial involvement, diagnoses of which are possible only during postmortem examination in some cases.

Keywords: Multiple myeloma, Polycystic kidney disease, Pericardial effusion, Cardiomyopathy, Familial.
