The relativistic quantum theory of cyclotron resonance in a medium with arbitrary dispersive properties is presented. The quantum equation of motion for a charged particle in the field of a plane electromagnetic wave and in the uniform magnetic field in a medium is solved in the eikonal approximation. The probabilities of induced multiphoton transitions between the Landau levels in a strong laser field are calculated.
