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: As imaging demonstrated that this lesion was atypical, a renal biopsy was performed. Results were highly suggestive of a primary extramedullary plasmacytoma of the kidney (Figure 3). Plasma electrophoresis for paraproteins was normal. In addition, both urinary Bence-Jones proteins and bone marrow biopsy returned normal.
