J Laryngol Otol. 1985 Dec;99(12):1289-92. doi: 10.1017/s0022215100098558.


A case of plasmacytoma of the nasopharynx with a 12-year follow-up is reported. The difficulty in clinical and histological diagnosis is stressed. Despite the development of multiple metastatic lesions, repeated investigations for multiple myeloma were consistently negative. The patient was treated with a combination of radiotherapy, surgery and chemotherapy at different stages of the disease.
