Özet

Ophthalmic involvement appears rarely in multiple myeloma (MM). Ophthalmic findings are mostly noted as complications caused by disease or treatment. MM-associated with 6th nerve paralysis is a rare entity. Bortezomib, one of the novel agents used to treat MM, has neurotoxic effect and may cause permanent nerve damage. Herein, we report a 50-year-old male patient with MM who developed the 6th nerve paralysis while receiving bortezomib and discuss its relevant causes.
