  • MGUS
  • aka: monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance,
  • 3/10
  • not quite MM (no CRAB, M protein < 3g/dL, marrow plasma cells < 10%), but getting there (1%/year)
  • asymptomatic
  • M protein < 3g/dL, marrow plasma cells < 10%
  • M protein most commonly IgG; if IgM, then it's called IgM MGUS
  • 3 looks like m sideways. 10 looks like P (just need glue). So, the 3/10 cutoff for Mprotein/plasma cell
