Résumé / Abstract

Objective. To know the rate of occurence of monoclonal bands in a clinical laboratory as an estimate of monoclonal gammopathy incidence, and to detect the proportion of these bands in which an explicit clinical diagnosis or follow-up request is not established. Other objectives are to describe its distribution and the characteristics of the patients. Patients and methods. 200 patients were studied in which a monoclonal band had been detected de novo. Results. The incidence was 6.59×10-4 year-1. In 59.5% a diagnostic assumption was not stated. Most frequent diagnosis in the group of patients with a diagnosis was monoclonal gammopathy with uncertain meaning. Average age of patients was 74.4 years and the difference between percentages by sex was statistically significant. Discussion. The data suggest a lack of clinical effort when the result is the appearance of a monoclonal band. There is no discrepancy in the distribution of the bands and in the characteristics of the patients with regard to what is described in other studies.
