Abstract
Extramedullary plasmocytoma is an expansion of a single clone of immunoglobulin-secreting plasma cells without evidence of multiple myeloma. It is un uncommon entity that occurs usually in head and neck area. It is radiocurable at average doses while adjuvant chemotherapy is still controversial. Progression rates to multiple myeloma are lower than bone plasmacytoma. We report three cases of extramedullary plasmacytoma and through a literature review we discuss radiation modalities as well as evolutionary aspects.

Key words: extramedullary plasmacytoma, radiation therapy, prognosis
