Abstract

Renal involvements of POEMS syndrome are not rare. In some reports, almost 50% of patients show proteinuria. There are some case reports of renal involvement in POEMS syndrome in Korea, but there are no reports about clinical features of renal involvement in POEMS syndrome in Korea and its frequency. We report a case of POEMS syndrome with nephropathy and clinical features of renal involvement in POEMS syndrome in Korea. The most frequent symptoms in POEMS syndrome in Korea were polyneuropathy, edema and ascites. Renal involvement was found in 40% of patients. If there were unknown cause of edema and renal failure when combined with polyneuropathy, considerations should be taken into patients for POEMS syndrome even though POEMS syndrome is very rare.
