GARRIDO ABAD, P. et al. Secondary bilateral testicular plasmacytoma: Case report and review of the literature. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2008, vol.32, n.10, pp.1039-1042. ISSN 0210-4806.

Testicular plasmacytoma is a very unfrequent plasma cells neoplasm. It is usually an incidental autopsy finding devoid of clinical expression, but it presents sometimes as part of a multiple myeloma and is exceptionally its only location. Bilateral involvement is extremely unfrequent. We report the case of a 58 years old man diagnosed with multiple myeloma in complete remission who complains about progressive enlargement of both testicles. After ultrasonography and PAAF, bilateral testicular plasmacytoma is diagnosed. Treatment includes surgery (orchiectomy), radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Prognostic is worse when multiple myeloma is associated.

Keywords : Testicular tumour; Plasmacytoma; Myeloma.
