Plasma cell myeloma may present as one of three distinct clinical entities: Multiple myeloma, Solitary Plasma cell myeloma of Bone (SPB) and extra medullary Plasmacytoma. The solitary Plasmacytoma of bone is an unusual neoplasm of plasma cells. It occurs most frequently in the vertebrae, femur, and pelvis. Its occurrence in the mandible is very rare.
