Intracranial Plasmacytoma Mimicking a Cavernous Sinus Meningioma.
Extramedullary plasmacytomas involving the cavernous sinus are rare manifestations of multiple myeloma, and management strategies for such a pathology are not extensively discussed in the literature. In this case report, we describe the case of a patient presenting with a cavernous sinus syndrome secondary to a presumed meningioma. Surgical intervention was avoided as a computed tomography-guided biopsy was performed yielding the diagnosis of a cavernous sinus plasmacytoma. Neurointerventional radiology obtained the cavernous sinus mass biopsy using an approach through the maxillary bone and sinus. Histopathology identified sheets of atypical plasma cells, and the patient was referred to radiation oncology for further management.
