Background. Multiple myeloma (MulM) is a paraproteinemic hemoblastosis characterized by destructive damage to the skeleton, the development of renal failure, anemia, and hypercalcemia. Aim. Study of the potentials of computed tomography in identifying MulM. Material and methods. Russian and English language sources are analyzed. Clinical cases are presented that demonstrate the potentials of computed tomography in the diagnosis of MulM. Results. The presented review reveals the issues of

Multiple myeloma should be considered as a disease that affects many organs and systems of the body. Computed tomography is the leading method for diagnosing lytic bone lesions in MulM.
