Plasmacytoma of bone
Characterized by osteolytic lesions, skeletal pain, and pathologic fracture. Other signs and symptoms include numbness, peripheral neuropathy, and joint pain. Uncommonly presents with palpable mass if surrounding soft tissue is involved. Common skeletal sites are those involving active hematopoiesis such as thoracic vertebrae, ribs, pelvic bones, and bones of upper extremities.
Management commonly involves localized radiation therapy. Surgery may be called for. Adjuvant chemotherapy remains controversial.
