The report describes eight gamma 2 paraproteinemias observed in various internal diseases without a sure indication at that time of plasmocytoma. In immuno-electrophoresis the changes varied in intensity, but were unequivocally demonstrable. Agar-gel electrophoresis showed one or several extra gradients in all cases. Paper electrophoresis, on the other hand, revealed a narrow-base gradient only four times. The majority of the cases showed a moderate plasmacellular reaction in the sternal punctate. In addition, atypical changes in the gamma globulin area elongated duplication of the gamma 2 line, splitting at the cathodic end of the gamma 2 line could be demonstrated immuno-electrophoretically in thirteen additional patients with various diseases.
