Abstract
We report here two patients presenting a myopathy associated with a monoclonal gammopathy (of IgG lambda or IgA kappa type) and, in one case, also with a leukoencephalopathy. Possible etiopathological mechanisms between these neurological diseases and an immune disregulation are discussed.
