Abstract: We present a case of ovarian plasmacytoma results in the patient's death by very quick progression after the operation, radiation and chemo therapy. As reported cases of primary ovarian plasmacytoma are very rare, its prognosis remains unknown. To date, we found seven reports of solitary ovarian plasmacytoma. Except for our case, most cases showed relatively slow progression or need only strict observation without recurrence. Although post-surgical therapy of ovarian plasmacytoma is not clearly established, our case was needed to use radiation and chemo therapy against the very rapid recurrent tumor. In this case, ovarian plasmacytoma relapsed very quickly, suggesting that some cases of ovarian plasmacytoma may require an aggressive adjuvant therapy.
