Takatsuki disease
POEMS syndrome (also known as Crow–Fukase syndrome, Takatsuki disease, or PEP syndrome) is a rare medical syndrome. It is defined as the combination of a plasma-cell proliferative disorder (typically myeloma), polyneuropathy, and effects on many other organ systems. It begins in middle age – the average age at onset is 50 – and affects up to twice as many men as women. If untreated it is progressive and often fatal, with only 60% of sufferers remaining alive five years after onset. However, the symptoms can improve if the blood disorder is successfully treated.
The name 'POEMS syndrome', now the most prevalent, was coined in 1980 by Bardwick et al. The name is an acronym deriving from some of the main features: Polyneuropathy (peripheral nerve damage), Organomegaly (abnormal enlargement of organs), Endocrinopathy (damage to hormone-producing glands) or Edema, M-protein (an abnormal immunoglobulin) and Skin abnormalities (including hyperpigmentation and hypertrichosis). However, these features are neither an exhaustive list nor seen in all individuals with the condition.

Roentgen Ray Reader: POEMS Syndrome
POEMS syndrome is a paraneoplastic syndrome related to a plasma cell dyscrasia that is also known as Crow-Fukase syndrome, Takatsuki syndrome. The acronyms POEMS (Polyneuropathy, Organomegaly, Endocrinopathy, M protein and Skin changes) and PEP (Plasma cell dyscrasia, Endocrinopathy and Polyneuropathy), capture some—but not all—of the associated manifestations.

WJSO | Full text | Rectal lymph node metastasis in recurrent ovarian carcinoma: essential role of 18F-FDG PET/CT in treatment planning
Although uncommon, ovarian cancer cells may spread to the rectal lymph nodes. However, few reports have described how to detect and treat such metastases. We report a case of a 59-year-old woman with mesorectal and pararectal lymph node metastases in recurrent ovarian carcinoma, detected conclusively using 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT), and treated by low anterior resection with total mesorectal excision aiming for macroscopic complete resection. The treatment goals for the patient were gradually changed from curative to palliative chemotherapy; she survived for 45 months without rectal obstruction after secondary debulking surgery, and was followed up until autopsy. Thus, 18F-FDG PET/CT may be valuable for detecting rectal lymph node metastasis and can play an essential role in planning treatment for recurrent ovarian carcinoma.
