'Strouhal E, Kritscher H, 1990: Neolithic Case of a Multiple Myeloma from Mauer (Vienna, Austria). Anthropologie (Brno) 28, 1: 79-87'.
A previously described perforated skeleton of the Neolithic period (Lengyel culture) from Mauer (Vienna) was re-examined from the palaeopathological point of view. The large number, small and not very variable size, characteristic morphology and typical anatomical distribution of the exclusively lytic lesions lacking sclerotic changes favour their identification with a speedy malignant intravital process. Of the two most probable diagnoses, that of a myeloma multiplex appears to be more probable than that of a metastatic carcinoma. The significance of the find is being discussed in light of the literary analogies.
