  Abstract

  A solitary plasmacytoma of bone occurs in approximately 2-5% of patients with

  myeloma. The lesion mostly found in the axial skeleton and have infrequently been

  reported to arise in the hand, and usually occur in the distal phalanges. We report the

  interesting case of a 75-year-old man who developed a solitary lytic lesion of the

  thumb proximal phalanx. This lesion was explored through MR imaging and histologic

  examination, and then a final diagnosis of plasmacytoma was determined. He

  was treated with fractionated radiotherapy and no complication was detected with

  this procedure. The clinical, imaging, and histologic findings of this case are presented

  here.
