Poems syndrome: A review

Rashmi B Patkar

The purpose of this review is to provide the latest information on POEMS syndrome. The authors conducted a literature search of available sources describing the issue of POEMS syndrome with special focus on syndrome and made a comparison and evaluation of relevant findings. The results of this review indicate that POEMS syndrome is associated with a group of disorders known as monoclonal gammopathies or plasma cell dyscrasias. These disorders are characterized the uncontrolled growth of a single clone (monoclonal) of plasma cells, which results in the abnormal accumulation of M-proteins (also known as immunoglobulin) in the blood which has a significant impact on the quality of life of both the patients and his/her family. Therefore, early and proper diagnosis and treatment are necessary in order to reduce or even eliminate both symptoms and social burden of the patient.
