A case of Waldenström's macroglobulinaemia presenting with non-specific dermatological symptoms (cold urticaria and cold purpura) is described in a 37-year-old female patient. Progressive telangiectasia and spider naevi were also observed. Involvement of the skin may be explained by the presence of macroglobulins with cryoprotein-like qualities. This facilitated an early diagnosis.
