A male Spitz was presented with history of severe dyspnea and open mouth breathing. Physical examination revealed a fist-sized growth on the right side of neck, behind the angle of mandible. Radiograph showed narrowing of cranial part of trachea. Surgery was performed under general anaesthesia with Isoflurane to excise the tumor mass. Capsulated, slightly irregularly marginated tumor mass of about 7.5 cm diameter was positioned deep within the muscles of neck bordered by jugular vein and carotid artery laterally. Histopathology were suggestive of plasma cell tumor or extramedullary plasmacytoma (EMP). Normal respiratory pattern was restored immediately after removal of the mass.
