Solitary plasmacytoma is a rare condition affecting the jaws which manifests itself as a single osteolytic lesion without plasmocytosis of bone marrow and constitutes approximately 3% of all plasma containing tumors. It is different from multiple myeloma in terms of its clinical behaviour and prognosis. The most common clinical presentation is local bone pain and lesion on alveolar ridge and affects mandible frequently than maxilla. We report a rare case of solitary plasmacytoma of mandible, diagnosed on the basis of distinct radiological and histopathological findings, that has been treated by subtotal hemimandibulectomy. The review of literature concerning clinical, histological and radiological features, as well as the proper management concerning this tumour is included.
