HALAC, S et al. Cutaneous and systemic plasmocytosis: a case report. Rev. argent. dermatol. [online]. 2014, vol.95, n.3, pp.17-19. ISSN 1851-300X.

Cutaneous and systemic plasmocytosis is a rare disorder characterized by a polyclonal plasma cell infiltration in skin and other organs. We report a case of a 31 year old man with a medical history of HIV infection. He had frontal bone and skin involvement. Histopathological examination revealed a perivascular infiltrate composed predominantly of plasma cells expressing kappa and lamba light chains. Laboratory test demonstrated polyclonal hypergammaglobulinemia. The patient had spontaneus remission of his disease.

Keywords : Systemic plasmocytosis; Cutaneous plasmocitosis; Plasma cells; Polyclonal hypergammaglobulinemia.
