Compression of cranial nerves (CNs) by an intracranial plasmacytoma is considered to be an unusual presentation of multiple myeloma (MM). Here, we report a case of right 3 rd , 6 th , 9 th , 10 th and 12 th CN involvement, which emphasizes the fact that multiple CN palsy can be the first presenting feature of MM.
