In brief: Nephropathy
Myeloma produces proteins called light chains which can essentially "clog up" the kidney producing myeloma nephropathy.
Myeloma also produces humoral substances which can damage the kidney.

In brief: Myeloma and kidney
Two major causes of kidney problem in patients with myeloma - direct effect of the abnormal protein to the kidney also called myeloma kidney/cast nephropathy and increase serum calcium /hypercalcemia.
. Other causes of kidney failure include amyloidosis, and drug-induced kidney damage.
