Plasmazellneoplasien zählen zu den häufigsten hämatologischen Tumoren und Indikationen einer Knochenmarkbiopsie. Die in der WHO Klassifikation gelisteten Entitäten unterscheiden sich in ihrem morphologischen, immunhistochemischen und genetischen Profil und in ihren prognostischen Parametern. Die monoklonale Gammopathie unklarer Signifikanz, die große Gruppe des multiplen Myeloms und dessen Sonderformen, das seltene solitäre Plasmozytom des Knochens, das extramedulläre solitäre Plasmozytom und das osteosklerotische Plasmozytom, werden in Diagnose und Differenzialdiagnose nach den aktuellen pathogenetischen Kriterien dargestellt.
