Abstract

Cutaneous macroglobulinosis may be a rare presenting sign of Waldenström's macroglobulinemia. Deposits of macroglobulin in the skin result in a histologic picture that greatly resembles amyloid. Histochemical stains, direct immunofluorescence microscopy, and electron microscopy are useful tools that enable accurate diagnosis and help to distinguish cutaneous macroglobulinosis from other deposition disorders.
