Some patients suffer from hyperviscosity caused by exceeding levels of IgM paraprotein. In this case, quantification of serum viscosity might be helpful. However, serum viscosity does not always correspond well to the clinical severity of hyperviscosity. More important are clinical examinations such as fundoscopy, which show, for example, venous engorgement (“sausaging”) in the retinal veins, which is an excellent indicator of clinically relevant hyperviscosity. 23 In case of peripheral neuropathy, the evaluation of antimyelin-associated glycoprotein.
