[Case Report] As white as ivory: sclerotic vertebra in POEMS syndrome

In January, 2016, a 59-year-old woman presented to our clinic for evaluation of new-onset diabetes, skin pigmentation, and progressive leg weakness. She had been well until September, 2015, when she started losing weight unintentionally and developed numbness and weakness in her legs, which worsened over the next months until she had difficulty walking and using the stairs. She found it difficult to stand on her heels and had unsteadiness while walking, although she did not fall. The suntan she had acquired during the summer did not fade as usual.
