Renal failure in multiple myeloma can be precipitated during hemodynamic perturbances of renal blood flow, as seen secondary to volume depletion, radiocontrast dye, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents. We report two cases of acute renal failure that developed suddenly after initiation of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, both with biopsy-proven cast nephropathy. ACE inhibitors may contribute to the intratubular light chain cast formation and acute "myeloma kidney" in susceptible patients.
