Solitary extramedullary plasmacytoma of prostate on the background of treated prostate adenocarcinoma

University Hospital Galway, Galway, Ireland.
Solitary Plasmacytoma is a rare entity which accounts for < 5% of all plasma cell dyscrasias. Most commonly involved sites for solitary extramedullary plasmacytoma are head and neck (90 %) especially upper respiratory tract, followed by Gastrointestinal tract. Rarely it can involve testes, bladder and orbit. PET/CT provides an invaluable imaging support for initial evaluation of additional plasmacytomas and response to treatment. There are no randomized trials regarding the best treatment approach. Generally, radiotherapy remains treatment of choice of solitary plasmacytoma. Our case, with its rare site of occurrence along with patient’s history of radiotherapy treated prostate malignancy and significant history of radiation cystitis provides a unique diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. Treatment can be personalised in cases such as this, where patients can be treated with chemotherapy in contrary to radiotherapy as further exposure to the radiations could exacerbate the bleeding risks.
