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.
