Waldenström’s macroglobulinaemia (also known as lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma) is a rare form of low-grade lymphoma (a type of bone marrow cancer), which is associated in most cases with the presence of an excessive amount of abnormal protein (called “paraprotein” or “M-protein”) in the blood. Due to the rarity of the condition, a specialist clinic addresses the specific needs of this patient group.

Paraprotein-associated or Paraproteinaemic neuropathy is a condition affecting the peripheral nerves, associated with the presence of a protein in the blood known as a paraprotein. The Joint Neuropathy Clinic, held weekly at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, together with Professor Michael Lunn, Consultant Neurologist with a specialist interest in inflammatory neuropathies, provides multi-specialist input for patients with this condition.
