Craniocerebral plasmacytoma: MR features.
We report the MR imaging findings in two patients with solitary craniocerebral plasmacytoma, a benign plasma cell tumor that can arise from the skull, the dura, or, rarely, the brain. In both patients, the lesion was extraaxial and nearly isointense with gray matter on T2-weighted MR images, and diffusely enhanced after administration of contrast material, bearing some similarities to meningioma. A diagnosis of solitary craniocerebral plasmacytoma should be considered when a mass with these imaging features is seen, because total excision may not be necessary for this radiosensitive tumor.
