plasmacytoma

any focal neoplasm of plasmacytes, including those of multiple myeloma (immunoblastic sarcoma). Isolated plasmacytomas may occur outside the bone marrow (extramedullary plasmacytomas), affecting such tissues as the nasal, oral, pharyngeal and gastrointestinal mucosa and other viscera; called also plasma cell tumor.
