SPEP and UPEP pattern matching game!

Dr Rebecca Morrow’s SPEP/UPEP matching game!  Try your hand at it – which pattern on the right matches the protein electrophoresis pattern on the left?

A monoclonal pattern is suggestive of multiple myeloma or MGUS.  There will be one or two “spikes” of protein present.

A normal pattern is, as you would think, a normal pattern of several types of antibodies being produced.

Answers:  1 = normal pattern; 2 = elf hat; 3 = monoclonal pattern; 4 = Rocky Mountains.
