Solitary plasmacytoma of bone (SPB), also called osseous plasmacytoma, SPBs have male preponderance and are two times more common in male as compared to females. Approximately 55 years is the median age of patients for SPB.To avoid progression to multiple myeloma, localized radiation therapy is the first-line treatment. A 45-year-old female visited our hospital due to complaint of pain in right hip and right knee. X-ray CT and MRI showed lytic lesions and heterogeneously hypointense on STIR images in the proximal metaphyseal region of the right femur, pathology showed plasmacytoma.
