Özet

Intracranial solitary plasmacytomas (ICSPs) are extremely rare tumours in neurosurgical practice, and are often misdiagnosed preoperatively. Here we present a solitary intracranial plasmacytoma with orbital, nasal and paranasal sinus extension. A subtotal excision of the tumour was performed and the complete response was seen after postoperative radio-chemotherapy. The neuroradiological and neurosurgical features of the case are discussed with the pertinent literature. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
