A 46-year-old woman presented with epigastric pain and weight loss for over a year. An upper endoscopy was performed and showed a polypoid lesion in the antropyloric region. Immuno-pathological report revealed a proliferation of plasma cell nature. The whole work-up including complete blood test, bone marrow biopsy and 18FDG-PET-CT did not detect extra gastric lesion of multiple myeloma. The diagnosis of extramedullary plasmacytoma of the stomach was established. Radiotherapy (44 Gy) with a curative intent was administered but the control biopsy showed residual disease. Endoscopic submucosal dissection was then performed with R0 resection (negative margins) leading to complete remission.
