Abstract

We describe the course of disease and multidisciplinary treatment of a multiple myeloma patient who presented with a life-threatening plasmacytoma in-scar resistant to conventional treatment. She underwent wide resection with immediate free-flap reconstruction, allowing for early chemoradiotherapy and autologous bone marrow transplant. She survived additional 18 months following surgery.
