They represent less than 1% of malignant head and neck tumors. We report the case of a 42-year-old patient complaining of headache, ptosis of the right eye and hypoesthesia of the face evolving for a few weeks. MRI showed a mass in the sphenoid sinus with local extension. The myelogram objectified the presence of 60% dystrophic plasma cells, which confirms the diagnosis of multiple myeloma.
