Localized solitary plasmacytoma of the bone is a rare disease and is characterized by only one or two isolated bone lesions with no evidence of disease dissemination. We report a case of solitary plasmacytoma of the rib in a 43-year-old female. The patient underwent complete en-bloc resection of the chest wall including rib, muscle, and parietal pleura. Patient is asymptomatic without any recurrence after two and half years of follow up.
