Persistent Plasma Cell Tumor of the Nasopharynx after Radiotherapy Treatment: A Case Report and Review of the Literature

Extramedullary plasmacytoma of the head and neck region is a rare malignant tumor comprising approximately 3% of all plasma tumors. Approximately 80-90% involve the mucosa of the upper airway.
