Abstract:  A plasmacytoma is a discrete, solitary mass of neoplastic monoclonal plasma cells in either bone or soft tissue (extramedullary). Solitary plasmacytomas can be divided into 2 groups according to location, plasmacytoma of the skeletal system (SBP) and extramedullary plasmacytoma (EMP) respectively. Less than 5% of patients with a plasma cell dyscrasia present with a single bone (SBP) or extramedullary plasmacytoma (EMP).

We present 2 rare cases of solitary plasmacytoma of bone affecting the mandible of 60 year old female and a 58 year old male.

Key words: Plasmacytoma, solitary, mandible.
