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.Journal of Neurology 11/2009; 257(3):484-7. DOI:10.1007/s00415-009-5398-6 · 3.38 Impact Factor
