Extramedullary plasmacytoma is a rare plasma cell neoplasm that can occur in the head and neck. In this article we describe a case of multiple synchronous extramedullary plasmacytomas involving the upper airway, pharynx, and larynx. The clinical, imaging, and pathologic features of this neoplasm are discussed, together with potential treatment options.
