Abstract

A patient presented with right hemiparesis, dysphasia and a large, palpable, left frontoparietal mass arising from the calvarial diploe. A diagnosis of multiple myeloma was made on radiological and biochemical grounds, together with bone marrow examination. Few cases of cerebral compression by a massive plasmacytoma have been reported, but in some surgical management produced clinical deterioration. The present case was treated with radiotherapy and chemotherapy, with satisfactory results. Images
