Plasmacytoma is a localized clonal proliferation of plasma cells arising in bone or soft tissue. It accounts for <1% of head and neck tumors. Plasmacytoma is classified by World Health Organization into solitary bone plasmacytoma (SBP) and extramedullary plasmacytoma (EMP). The most common site is an upper aerodigestive tract, 80% occurring in nasal cavity and nasopharynx. Solitary intracranial plasmacytoma is rare, with only close to 20 cases reported in the literature. Most of the cases reported show involvement of the skull vault. Involvement of the base of the skull is rare with only a few exceptional reports citing clivus as the site. We report a case of plasmacytoma of the clivus in a 55 years old male.
