Extramedullary plasmacytoma is a rare disease, characterized histopathologically by infiltration of plasma cells of different maturities and producing monoclonal immunoglobulin outside the bone marrow. J.R.G., 52 years old, male, sought medical assistance due to amaurosis and blocked eye movements. We performed Magnetic Nuclear Resonance of the skull that showed discrete intermediate signal tissue, next to the optic nerve canal and homolateral superior orbital fissure, with slight extension to the lower orbital fissure, associated with thickening of the corresponding meninges, involving the proximal portion of the optic nerve, measuring 1.3 x 1.1 x 2.5 cm.
