Intracranial hemangiomas in a patient with POEMS syndrome


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.
