Hairy cell leukaemia (HCL) occasionally displays a monoclonal gammopathy, yet the association of HCL with paraproteinemic demyelinating neuropathy (PDN) has not been reported. We describe a HCL case complicated by PDN and high titers of monoclonal IgM against myelin associated glycoprotein (MAG). Heavy and light chains of the patient's anti-MAG monoclonal… CONTINUE READING
