GONZALEZ L, ROBERTO et al. Surgical resection of solitary plasmacytoma of the sternum associated with coronary artery bypass grafting surgery: Long-term follow up. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2011, vol.63, n.4, pp. 422-425. ISSN 0718-4026.

The plasmacytomas tumors are caused by a malignant proliferation of plasma cells. Primary tumors of the sternum are uncommon, being this kind of tumors exceptional. We present the case of a 72 years old man with a sternal plasmacytoma, that after 2 years of receiving radiotherapy treatment, had tumor growth, associated with coronary artery disease. In this case, surgical resection of solitary sternal plasmacytoma was performed associated with coronary artery bypass grafting surgery. The chest wall reconstruction was done with a polypropylene mesh. More than 5 years long-term follow up was completed and the patient is asymptomatic and free of malignant proliferation of plasma cells.
