Extramedullary plasmacytoma of the testicle.
CONCLUSIONS: Invasion of the testis in multiple myeloma patients as a recurrence of the disease is an extremely rare condition, as EMPs are more common in other organ systems. Initial treatment should be the same as a primary testicular tumor with radical inguinal orchiectomy, and definitive diagnosis is established in histologic analysis.

ConclusionOur study shows that combined modality S + RT is superior compared to uni-modality in preventing local recurrence. Radiation dose of 45 Gy is optimal. Nodal irradiation has no impact on local recurrence.
CONCLUSIONS: Tooth extraction triggered an ONJ associated with bisphosphonate treatment. However, it also seemed to induce a considerable proliferation of plasma cells at the extraction site; we hypothesize that it is due to the increase in bone remodeling related to the surgical trauma.

We report the first case of Collet-Sicard attributable to extramedullary plasmacytoma-multiple myeloma (EP-MM), as well as the second case of EP-MM precipitating a jugular foramen syndrome (JFS)-spectrum disorder.

Conclusions18F –FDG pathological uptake in SP occurred in most cases, being independently associated with tumor size. PET/CT seemed to be correlated to a higher risk of transformation in MM, in particular for 18F–FDG avid plasmacytoma and SBP. Among semiquantitative features, SUVlbm > 5.2 and SUVbsa > 1.7 were significantly correlated with TTMM.
We report a case of CD138-low MSP with 17p deletion in a patient with relapsed SBP. 17p deletion is associated with a poor outcome in patients with MM, and the low expression of CD138 in myeloma cells is associated with drug resistance and a poor prognosis. The patient was successfully treated with bortezomib plus dexamethasone induction therapy and autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation followed by bortezomib maintenance therapy. Consequently, bortezomib treatment was stopped and a stringent complete response has been maintained. PMID: 29151530 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract The association between plasmacytomas and multiple myeloma (MM) is well-described, and in about one third of the cases of plasmacytoma the additional study will lead to the diagnosis of MM. The finding of plasmacytomas in the genital tract is extremely rare, with sparse cases described in the literature, and these cases pose a challenge regarding the optimal guidance and treatment. This paper describes a case of uterine extramedullary plasmacytoma in a 79-year-old woman with complaints of postmenopausal abnormal uterine bleeding. The complementary study led to the diagnosis of uterine plasmacytoma and, subsequentl...
