Abstract

PURPOSE: To report the case of a 64-year-old woman with peripheral neuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal gammopathy, and skin changes (POEMS) syndrome, Castleman disease, optic nerve drusen, and peripapillary choroidal neovascularization. METHODS: Interventional case report. Clinical practice. RESULTS: Laser photocoagulation resolved the peripapillary choroidal neovascularization. CONCLUSION: This is the first documented case of optic disk drusen and peripapillary choroidal neovascularization associated with POEMS.
