ABSTRACT

Introduction: Extramedullary plasmacytoma is a rare tumor, mainly located to the upper aerodigestive tract, primary pulmonary plasmacytoma is an exceptional localization.
Case Report: We report the case of a patient who presented an isolated pulmonary plasmacytoma confirmed by microscopic and immunohistochemical examination. The patient had a surgical resection without any adjuvant treatment.
Conclusion: Despite the low incidence of PEM (plasmacytome extramédullaire) (less than 2%) and the rarity of this location, we should report any cases found, in order to determine the clinical, epidemiological and prognostic characteristics of the tumor more accurately, as well as its appropriate treatment.

Keywords: Lung, Solitary plasmacytoma, Surgery, Treatment
