Extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma (ENKL) was the most common sinonasal lymphoma at our hospital. ENKL occurs at a younger age, and is more prevalent in the nasal cavity. ENKL had a lower Ann Arbor stage, and a better prognosis than diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBLC).

Keywords: diffuse large B-cell lymphoma; endoscopic sinus surgery; extranodal NK T cell Lymphoma; paranasal sinus diseases; sinus surgery.
