Purpose. To present a rare clinical observation – a case of plasmocytic infiltration of the pterygopalatine fossa in a patient with multiple myeloma.

Materials and methods. The article described a clinical case of a patient with multiple myeloma, who applied to a hospital with the following complaints: nasal breathing suppression, hoarseness, coughing, pain in sterno-costal articulations and thoracic vertebrae. MDCT of paranasal sinuses and thoracic region was performed on the Brilliance64 (Philips).

Results and conclusions. This case is interesting because localization of the lesion is atypical. In our case the lack of highly specific bone manifestations of multiple myeloma on CT tomograms didn’t allow to judge accurately about the source and the reason of changes, which emphasized the need to exclude systemic lesions in every case of a single mass.


Keywords: extramedullary plasmacytoma, multiple myeloma, pterygopalatine fossa, MDCT.
