Abstract

Extramedullary plasmacytoma (EMP) results from uncontrolled plasma cell proliferation and consists of monoclonal plasmacytic infiltration without bone marrow involvement. These tumors occur most commonly in the head and neck region, followed by gastrointestinal tract, central nervous system, thyroid, breast, parotid gland, testis and lymph nodes. Primary renal plasmacytoma is very rare. We report a primary renal plasmacytoma in a 76 year old female.
