Abstract

Solitary plasmacytomas of clivus are a rare entity, having only less than 20 cases reported so far in the literature; its diagnosis and management don’t have a gold standard. Although endoscopic skull base surgery (ESBS) is less morbid, it poses a challenge to the surgeon because of the critical location close to vital structures and intraoperative bleeding. Here we present a case report on managing this rare entity and our challenges while dealing with this vascular tumour.
