Primary plasmacytoma of the kidney.

Spence RA, Thwaini A, O'Rourke DM - Case Rep Urol (2013)

Bottom Line: Primary renal plasmacytomas are an extremely rare clinical condition.Their management is particularly challenging due to the paucity of evidence, with only just over a dozen previously reported cases.The case is presented as a learning point that it is imperative to keep plasmacytic tumours in mind and to include them in the differential diagnosis of anaplastic tumours, even in unusual locations, such as the kidney.

ABSTRACT
Primary renal plasmacytomas are an extremely rare clinical condition. Their management is particularly challenging due to the paucity of evidence, with only just over a dozen previously reported cases. We report a case of a primary extramedullary plasmacytoma of the kidney and performed a review of the literature. The case is presented as a learning point that it is imperative to keep plasmacytic tumours in mind and to include them in the differential diagnosis of anaplastic tumours, even in unusual locations, such as the kidney.

Mentions: (Computed tomography) CT and (magnetic resonance) MR imaging demonstrated a solid lesion involving the lower two thirds of the right kidney (Figures 1 and 2). The left kidney was atrophic. The patient was initially managed with right JJ stenting, which resulted in normalisation of his creatinine. However, renal function began further deterioration, thus underwent right percutaneous nephrostomy tube insertion. Renal function normalised following this procedure.
