We review the concept fo Monoclonal Gammopathy emphasizing that the so called benign forms, with or without polyneuropathy can have an unpredictable evolution. Polyneuropathies associated to monoclonal gammopathy-IgM, IgG, IgA, Waldestrom's disease, Multiple myeloma, Osteosclerotic myeloma (POEMS), Amyloidosis and Cryoglobulinemias are reviewed. They(More)
