This is a retrospective case description of a single female patient found to have a primary solitary extramedullary plasmacytoma of the orbital apex and temporal/parietal dura. These monoclonal plasma cell neoplasms account for fewer than 5% of plasma cell neoplasms. Although most commonly found in the head and neck, orbital and dural solitary extramedullary plasmacytomas are extremely uncommon. The authors present a case of an extramedullary plasmacytoma involving both of these structures in a middle-age otherwise healthy female to highlight this rare entity and elucidate current treatment modalities and future considerations.
