In a review of 222 cases of plasmocytoma, the author demonstrates that solitary plasmocytoma is not rare and has a different localization in bone as compared with the multiple type. The prognosis is influenced by the number of lesions, the level of the anemia, calcemia and hypoalbuminaemia, and the type and level of the paraproteins. In solitary plasmocytoma, the prognosis is also conditioned by the sex of the patient and the site of the primary localization. Proteinaemia was increased in only 40 per cent of cases and electrophoresis was negative in 20 per cent. The treatment of choice for plasmocytoma is radiotherapy associated with Malphalan.
