Extramedullary plasmacytoma (EMP) of the head and neck is a rare malignant tumor that accounts for just 3% of all plasma cell tumors. The mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue of the upper airways is involved in around 80%–90% of EMP. Because there is no conventional treatment regimen for plasmacytoma of the paranasal sinuses (PNS), therapy might be difficult. In this article, we will discuss six cases of EMP PNS, as well as the problems we encountered throughout their treatment.
