Extramedullary plasmacytoma is a rare complication from multiple myeloma.We report a 56-year-old lady with underlying multiple myeloma who developed swelling over the left eye. It caused a non-axial proptosis, exposure keratopathy and visual acuity of counting fingers. A tissue biopsy revealed infiltration of tissue fragments with neoplastic plasma cells positive for CD138 and Kappa light chain restrictions consistent with plasmacytoma. Following radio-chemotherapy, the mass shrunk tremendously but her visual outcome remained poor.
