Abstract
Dysphagia is one of the common clinical conditions. It could be due to variety of disorders including benign and malignant causes. In old age, dysphagia is a commonly due to malignant cause and carcinoma of esophagus is the most common cause. Our patient presented to us with dysphagia with normal esophagogastroduodenoscopy and ultimately found to have multiple myeloma. Dysphagia in multiple myeloma is commonly due to esophageal amyloidosis but biopsy of esophagus in our patient was normal. We attributed dysphagia to macroglossia.

Keywords: Amyloidosis, Dysphagia, Multiple myeloma
