Abstract

Plasmacytomas can present as either medullary or extramedullary neoplasms. Extramedullary plasmacytomas (EMPs) are rare tumors, accounting for approximately 1% of all head and neck malignancies. EMPs most commonly present as a solitary lesion, with multiple sites involved in only approximately 10% of cases. The authors report a case of a patient presenting with a history of nasal obstruction and nasal bleeding and who was found to have multiple EMPs of the nasal cavity accompanied by nasal polyps.
