Multiple myeloma (MM) is a malignant neoplasm characterized by an abnormal intramedullary plasma cell proliferation. It accounts for approximately 10% of all hematologic malignancies. It generally occurs between fourth and seventh decades of life, and it is predominant in male patients. Patients lower than 40 years are considered young, and only very few cases have been reported. We present a rare case of a 27-year-old man whose initial findings of MM were a swelling at the ramus of the mandible.
