Solitary extramedullary plasmacytomas of the head and neck region are rare entities. Very few have been described in the parotid gland. They can clinically and radiologically mimic the rather common benign tumors of the parotid gland (pleomorphic adenoma and Wharthin's tumor), and subsequently the need careful consideration by the involving surgeon and pathologist is needed for a proper diagnosis. In the present study, a case of solitary extramedullary plasmacytoma in the left parotid gland of a 55-year-old patient with mixed connective tissue disease is reported, along with the relevant clinical, imaging, operative, and histopathological findings. Postoperative hematological investigation to confirm the singularity of the lesion was performed. Complementary treatment with radiotherapy was followed. Disease-free, 1 year follow up is also presented.
