Solitary plasmacytoma of bone is defined by the presence of a single plasmacytoma in the absence of multiple osteolytic lesions or other findings compatible with multiple myeloma. We report an older patient with solitary plasmacytoma of the sternum associated with atypical clinical findings which complicated diagnosis and possible progression to multiple myeloma. During admission, the patient developed refractory hyponatremia, superficial thrombophlebitis in the left upper limb, periorbital cellulitis, endophthalmitis, and sternal osteomyelitis.
Serum protein electrophoresis showed a polyclonal increase in gamma globulins. Biopsy result was compatible with plasmacytoma. A computed tomography scan showed no additional lesions. Progression was poor, with chronic renal failure exacerbated by probable tumor lysis syndrome, resulting in death. Keywords: plasmacytoma; multiple myeloma; thrombophlebitis; hyponatremia. Evoluiu com tromboflebite superficial em membro superior esquerdo. A cultura revelou Staphilococcus aureus.
