Reactive Plasmacytosis is a benign, immunologic inflammatory disease whose etiology largely remains speculative and is a diagnosis of exclusion. In this paper, we report a rare case of reactive plasmacytosis diagnosed in a 69-year-old male who reported with the complaint of swelling post dental extraction.Episodes of pain was also experienced and even though radiographs proved futile, diagnosis was reached based on clinical and histopathological examinations. The diagnostic dilemma confronted has been described in this report.
