Findings of calcification on computed tomography (CT). a Plain CT of a POEMS syndrome patient with calciphylaxis. b The same CT changes in a chronic hemodialysis patient. c CT of a POEMS syndrome patient with no calcifications. d Ring-like calcification and occlusion of subcutaneous arterioles of an autopsy case. Autopsy case skin samples were obtained from a grossly normal lesion. Medial thickening and intimal loose fibrous proliferation caused arteriolar occlusion without any inflammation as seen on hematoxylin and eosin staining. e Calcification in the tunica media of arterioles as seen with von Kossa staining; Scale bars indicate 100 μm
