Abstract

Simultaneous extramedullary plasmacytoma of the nasopharynx and larynx is exceedingly rare; to the best of our knowledge, only 1 other case has been previously reported. We report a new case, which occurred in a 46-year-old woman. She was treated with a combination of surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. At 2 years of follow-up, no evidence of recurrence or progression to multiple myeloma was noted. We discuss the clinical features and treatment of plasma cell neoplasms in general and their three variants in particular.
