Background: Sinonasal malignancies are relatively rare but aggressive tumors. Squamous cell carcinomas are the most common, reported to constitute more than 40% of cases. Due to the insidious progression of sinonasal malignancies, patients tend to initially present in later stages, with a poor prognosis.
