Abstract

Plasmacytoma of the bronchus is a very rare plasma cell neoplasm affecting the bronchus. Here we report a case of plasmacytoma of the bronchus treated by radical radiotherapy in July 2002. The tumor responded very well to treatment and showed a slow but sustained regression in the size over two years. Presently, he has completed four and a half years of follow-up and is free of disease.
