Abstract

Rhinosporidiosis is a chronic granulomatous infection caused by Rhinosporidium seeberi which is endemic in many parts of India. Diagnosis is based on microscopy and histological examination of the lesion. The main modality of treatment is surgical excision of lesion. In recent days, bipolar diathermy and CO2 laser are used to prevent recurrence. Role of tablet dapsone in post operative period is also documented. This study reports a case of nasal rhinosporidiosis describing clinical features, microbiological and histological findings from a tertiary care health centre in Northern Bihar.

Keywords: Rhinosporidium seeberi, granulomatous, CO2 laser
