A case of POEMS syndrome in a 43-year-old male with polyneuropathy, osteolytic lesion of the basin due to solitary IgA-lambda plasmacytoma, cutaneous scleroderma-like changes, diffuse lymphadenopathy and hepatosplenomegaly is described. Liver biopsy showed a regenerative process of the parenchyma without laboratory and histologic evidence of necrosis. A peculiar finding was the onset of a right hemiparesis in the absence of signs of vascular disease or other predisposing factors. The possible links between the peculiar elements of the POEMS syndrome are briefly analyzed and discussed.
