Solitary plasmocytoma is rarely located in the cranial vault. We report a case of a 46-year-old Moroccan man who consulted for a medial and paramedian frontal swelling. Clinical examination revealed a large soft mass in the region frontal. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed an extra-axial mass. The lesion was totally excised despite the bleeding tendency. Histology disclosed the presence of a plasmacytoma. On follow up examination 3 years later no tumor recurrence or multiple myeloma was detected.
