Extramedullary plasmacytomas are rare tumors that typically involve the head and neck region. Only three reports exist in the literature of extramedullary plasmacytomas that involve the lower airways. We report the case of a 54-year-old woman with EMP of the right mainstem bronchus treated with sleeve resection.
