Abstract

We report here the case of a 20-year-old man with POEMS syndrome (polyneuropathy, organomegaly, edocrinopathy, M proteins, kin changes). This rare syndrome followed a 3-year history of a syndrome that mimicks a chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP). Treatment with cyclophosphamide induced regression of the syndrome and improved peripheral nerve conduction.
