A Rare Case Of Cutaneous Plasma Cell Granuloma

Author: Saranya.B

Category: Pathology


Plasma cell granuloma also known as Inflammatory pseudotumour, Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour, Pseudoinflammatory tumours is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm most commonly developing in the viscera with very rare primary cutaneous involvement. These tumours are a group of highly variable proliferations of myofibroblastic cells that are asoociated with a prominent inflammtory infiltrate. This neoplasm though behaves in a benign fashion , is considered to have an intermediate biologic potential, as cases of local recurrence and death have been reported. We report a case of a 78 year old male who presented with a nodular lesion in the back for 10 years duration. Excision of the nodule was done which showed features of Plasma cell granuloma on histopathological examination. We report this case for its rare cutaneous presentation.
