Can anyone assist with this diagnosis? MD gave me a code of 203.8X. I'm at a loss.

Polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal gammopathy, and skin changes (POEMS) syndrome

I don't see anything wrong with that diagnosis. The POEM syndrome is a multisystemic disease that effects many body systems, with the name POEM only recognizing the most prevalent. If you look in the index, you would find it under plasmacytoma- malignant, because it is typically a myeloma of the plasma cells. Hope this helps!!!:)
