Rhinosporidiosis is a unique disease, which is seen to be endemic in certain places in India such as Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka. The disease is caused by Rhinosporidium seebri and it is transmitted by bathing in ponds contaminated by cattle feces containing spores of the organism. The disease usually presents as multiple granulomatous bleeding polyps. The case described here is a unique presentation where it occurs only in a single site and that too in an uncommon location where the suspicion of rhinosporidiosis is a last possibility.
