In the total of 131 patients, 100% of patients were having fever, 13.74% of patients were having headache, 19.08% were having vomiting, 22.9% of patients were having abdominal pain, 22.9% of patients were having skin rash, 21.37% of patients were having bleeding manifestations, 20.61% of patients were having fluid accumulation, 25.19% of patients were having organomegaly, 6.1% of patients were having gallbladder wall thickening, and 3.05% of patients were having liver abscess [Tables 1 and 2].
With the constellation of manifestations of thrombocytopenia (T), anasarca (A), myelofibrosis (F) and proteinuria and organomegaly (O), a final diagnosis of TAFRO syndrome was thus confirmed.{Figure 1}
The physical examination revealed height of 51cm (3-10th p), weight of 4250 (3-10th p), the phenotypic features of JBS, normal respiration and cardiovascular system, and no organomegaly. The results of the laboratory examination were: Hgb: 9.5 g/dl, Hct: 30%, MCV: 72 fL, RBCs: 3 500.000 mm3, WBCs: 7120/mm3, PLT: 368 000 /mm3, sodium: 135 mEq/L, potassium: 3.4 mEq/L, chloride: 101 mEq/L, total protein: 6.6g/dl, albumin: 4.7g/dl, IgA: 38 mg/dl, IgG: 590 mg/dl, IgM: 52mg/dl, TSH: 7.4 uIU/ml (0.7-5.9 uIU/ml), T3: 2 pg/ml (2.5-5.5 pg/ml), T4: 0.7 pg/ml (0.96-1.77 pg/ml), and blood gases and, hepatic and renal function tests were normal.
The prognostic markers were deduced from their clinical parameters, mode of onset, duration of illness, co-morbid conditions, basic investigations, complications, presence of various clinical signs like organomegaly, bleeding tendency or any other new symptom or sign which appeared during the course of study.
Organomegaly could not be palpated because her abdomen was highly distended.
Her vital signs were stable, her abdominal exam was unremarkable, and she had no palpable organomegaly. Her hemoglobin, platelet count, white cell count, liver function, and renal function tests were all within normal limits.
Polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal protein, and skin changes (POEMS) syndrome is a rare syndrome with the following diagnostic criteria: major criteria: polyneuropathy, monoclonal plasma disorder, Castleman's disease, sclerotic bone lesions, increased vascular endothelial growth factor; minor criteria: organomegaly, extravascular volume overload, skin changes, endocrinopathy, papilledema, thrombocytosis, and polycythemia [2, 9].
On clinical examination, there was no cervical or axillary lymphadenopathy or organomegaly. Her chest X-ray showed the right upper lobe collapse.
TAFRO syndrome is a distinct subtype of iMCD characterized by the association of thrombocytopenia, anasarca, fever, reticulin fibrosis, and organomegaly [5].
Her abdomen was distended and mildly tender over the epigastric area, with no evidence of organomegaly. Her bowel sounds were hyperactive.
The abdomen was soft, non-distended, tender to light, and deep palpation in the umbilical area but no masses or organomegaly was felt.
The patients typically present with constitutional symptoms, cytopenias, and organomegaly. When treatment is indicated, immunosuppressive therapy such as methotrexate, cyclosporine, or cyclophosphamide is employed.
