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.

We present a case of recurrent epistaxis for 6 months and extensive work up revealed EP of the right nasal cavity. Primary care physicians and otolaryngologists should be aware of this very rare but a plausible cause of epistaxis and keep EP in the differential diagnosis of recurrent epistaxis.

We present the case of a 64-year-old male with known history of MM admitted with acute respiratory failure and a chest wall mass. Chest CT revealed patchy interstitial and alveolar opacities with no pulmonary masses or nodules. Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) was performed, with flow cytometry demonstrating monoclonal plasma cells expressing CD38, CD138 and CD56 with lambda light chain restriction. Fine Needle Aspiration of chest wall mass revealed CD138-positive cells as well.Review of the literature revealed only one other documented case of a patient presenting with both interstitial lung parenchymal involvement with MM as...

The final diagnosis of plasmacytoma was made by immunocytochemical stain of IgG and electron microscopical findings. Postoperatively, the radiological studies of systemic skeletal bone and cytology of bone marrow were normal. However, the serum IgG was high, and the urinary Bence-Jones protein (kappa type) was positive. Although these laboratory data normalized after ope...

ConclusionThe occurrence of solitary bone plasmacytoma in the bones of the face is a rare condition prevalent between the 4th and 6th decades of life, located in the posterior region of the mandible in most cases. Histopathological examination and systemic investigation are mandatory for confirmation of diagnosis.ResumoIntroduçãoO plasmocitoma solitário é um tumor maligno raro de células plasmáticas sem evidência de proliferação sistêmica e engloba dois subtipos: plasmocitoma solitário extramedular e plasmocitoma solitário ósseo.

CONCLUSIONS: On a case-by-case basis, patients may derive palliative benefit from orbital surgery in conjunction with radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Orbital surgeons are encouraged to work within a multidisciplinary framework of medical specialists, including haematologists and radiation oncologists, when determining the optimal management plan in cases of orbital extramedullary plasmacytoma.
