Abstract

Rhinosporidiosis is primarily an infection of the nose caused by Rhinosporidium seeberi. Other sites that can be involved are
conjunctiva, urethra, palate, tongue, epiglottis, larynx, trachea, bronchi, skin, vulva, and vagina. It is endemic in certain parts of
India and Sri Lanka. The pathogen is difficult to grow in culture and Hematoxylin and Eosin staining helps in confirmation of the
etiological agent. Surgery remains the mainstay of treatment. Here is a report aimed at documenting a 26-year-old female patient
with nasal rhinosporidiosis.

Keywords: Nasal mass, Polyploid lesion, Rhinosporidiosis, Rhinosporidium seeberi
