Tumours of haematopoietic and lymphoid tissues
Osteosclerotic myeloma is a plasma cell neoplasm characterized by fibrosis and osteosclerotic changes in bone trabeculae, and often with lymph node changes resembling the plasma cell variant of Castleman disease. This disorder is often a component of a rare syndrome that includes polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal gammopathy, and skin changes (POEMS)
