Abstract

Extramedullary plasmacytoma of the testis is extremely rare and usually associated with multiple myeloma. A 59-year-old man presented with painless enlargement of his left scrotal content.

Extensive investigations including skull series, bone C-T, bone biopsy and immunoelectrophoresis revealed multiple myeloma which had bone involvements and immunoglobulin abnormalities. Chemotherapy was done with melphalan and prednisolone. The presenlalion, evaluation and management of this extremely unusual tumor are reviewed.
