Primary plasmacytoma of the skin without evidence of bone marrow plasmacytosis is a rare disorder belonging to the heterogenous spectrum of plasma cell neoplasms and hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic disease characterized by painful recurrent abscesses, fistulas and scarring lesions in axilla, groin, perineum and rarely mass lesions at the affected site. Here we present a case of plasmacytoma masquerading as hidradenitis suppurativa that presented as a nodular growth in both the axilla in a 45 year old male.
