Sounds like a fungal infection that causes die back.
Just cannot find a reference to plum die back at this time. Unfortunately I am sure that I have sometime recently. :( :( :(

I had a plum infected with silver leaf and that is now very very dead, but when infected it had leaves with a silvery sheen, then the tree died. :ohmy: :ohmy: :ohmy:

Leaf curl?   :unsure: Did you prune it at the wrong time of year (whenever that is??)

My two look healthy - apart from snapped branches where blinking great pigeons keep settling!  :(
Never keep your wish-bone where your back-bone ought to be.

you need to buy a fungicidle wash , spray , follow instruction,

most plum tree get hit just as the flowers have formed , then the fugus takes over completely as fruit has formed
