Abstract

We report a case of a patient with scleromyxedema limited to the skin with an associated IgG λ monoclonal protein treated successfully with high-dose dexamethasone. We encourage the continued investigation of this complex relationship between the clinical presentation of scleromyxedema and its frequently associated paraproteinemia.
