Central Nervous System (CNS) involvement in multiple myeloma and/or multifocal solitary plasmacytoma is rare. Although they are unique entities, multiple myeloma (MM) and plasmacytoma represent a spectrum of plasma cell neoplastic diseases that can sometimes occur concurrently. Plasmacytomas very often present as late-stage sequelae of MM. In this case report, we report a 53-year-old female presenting with right abducens cranial nerve (CN) VI palsy as an initial presentation secondary to lesion of the right clivus.
