Case Report

POEMS syndrome with glomeruloid haemangioma: a case report

NPY Chan 陳珮瑤 and WY Lam 林永賢

A 56-year-old Chinese male presented with a few months' history of multiple erythematous nodules over the trunk and proximal arms. His past medical history included right iliac plasmacytoma, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy and membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis. Skin biopsy showed cherry haemangioma with focal glomeruloid haemangioma pattern. These clinical features together supported the diagnosis of POEMS syndrome.
