Abstract


Introduction
Plasmacytoma's are localized neoplastic proliferations of monoclonal plasma cells. The disease is divided into primary plasmacytoma of the bone and extramedullary plasmacytomas. These are rare, soft tissue tumors arising from malignant proliferations of plasma cells1 They primarily occur in the head and neck region usually presenting as soft tissue masses in the nasopharynx and paranasal sinuses In view of the rarity of the tumor, a case of extramedullary plasmacytoma of the right maxillary sinus is presented, clinical features described and therapeutic options discussed.
