Abstract

A solitary plasmacytoma of the calvarium was removed radically without postoperative radiotherapy. A 69-year-old female patient was operated for a giant solitary plasmacytoma in the frontal region and the follow-up over 10 years revealed no recurrence. The authors discuss that solitary plasmacytoma of the calvarium may have a good prognosis if radically removed and the radiotherapy may not be necessary.
