Abstract

An 80-year-old man presented with an 8-week history of painless swelling in the right lacrimal gland region with infero-medial dystopia of the globe. The lesion was excised and histology confirmed an orbital plasmacytoma. Multiple myeloma screening was negative and a solitary extramedullary plasmacytoma arising from the lacrimal gland was diagnosed. The patient was subsequently treated with radiotherapy.
