Plasmacytoma manifesting as recurrent cellulitis and hematic cyst of the orbit



Plasmacytoma manifesting as recurrent cellulitis and hematic cyst of the orbit



American Journal of Ophthalmology 122(4): 595-596



PURPOSE: To describe a patient with recurrent periorbital cellulitis and orbital blood cyst as the initial manifestation of primary extramedullary plasmacytoma. METHODS: The chart, imaging studies, and histopathologic examination results and literature on the subject were reviewed. RESULTS: Orbital surgery disclosed a hematic cyst along with a solitary plasma cell tumor. CONCLUSIONS: Periorbital cellulitis and pain can be a manifestation of a plasma cell tumor. Bleeding may occur within a necrotic orbital tumor.
