Solitary extramedullary plasmacytoma of the thyroid gland.

Ridal M, Ouattassi N, Harmouch T, Amarti A, Alami MN - Case Rep Otolaryngol (2012)

Bottom Line: We present a case of an extramedullary nonmucosal plasmacytoma of the thyroid gland which is the first case with regional metastatic lymph nodes.Although localized forms management is still controversial, authors require combined approach for regional metastatic forms.The prognosis is favorable compared to solitary bone plasmacytomas or multiple myeloma.

ABSTRACT
Solitary extramedullary plasmacytoma of the thyroid gland is an uncommon condition. Up to date, its clinical pathological features are not fully understood. We present a case of an extramedullary nonmucosal plasmacytoma of the thyroid gland which is the first case with regional metastatic lymph nodes. This condition requires a scrupulous survey to rule out a metastatic multiple myeloma. Although localized forms management is still controversial, authors require combined approach for regional metastatic forms. The prognosis is favorable compared to solitary bone plasmacytomas or multiple myeloma.

fig1: Neck ultrasonography that shows a heterogenous isthmic nodule.

Mentions: A 52-year-old female patient with no significant medical history was presented to the outpatient clinic with 6 months history of a progressively enlarging painless goiter with no toxic or pressure symptoms. Clinical examination revealed a firm nodular thyroid with a 2-centimeter lymph node of the IVth left cervical area. Neck ultrasonography (Figure 1) confirmed the enlargement of the thyroid gland with the presence of an 18 mm hypervascular isthmic lump and a 20 mm left cervical lymph node. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) examination of a thyroid node specimen was consistent with a lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma or a plasmacytoma.
