Maurer, G D; Schittenhelm, J; Ernemann, U; Kempf, V A J; Ritz, R; Weller, M; Schmidt, F (2010). Intracranial hemangiomas in a patient with POEMS syndrome. Journal of Neurology, 257(3):484-487.

Abstract

POEMS syndrome is a rare multi-system disease with typical features of polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal plasmaproliferative disorder and skin changes. We describe a 44-year-old woman with polyneuropathy, hepatomegaly, IgA lambda-plasmacytoma, thrombocytosis, papilledema with elevated protein levels in cerebrospinal fluid and multiple cutaneous hemangiomas who was diagnosed with three intracranial lesions. Histology revealed capillary hemangiomas, one of them displaying partially glomeruloid features.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
