Solitary calvarial plasmacytoma

J Craniofac Surg. 1992 Sep;3(2):108-12. doi: 10.1097/00001665-199209000-00010.


One patient with a solitary plasmacytoma of the frontal bone was treated with complete surgical resection. To reconstruct the large calvarial defect, a split-thickness calvarial graft was harvested from the parietal area and secured in place with miniplates. Solitary plasmacytomas of the calvaria are not common. Clinical presentation, diagnostic criteria, therapeutic approaches, and prognosis are discussed.
