Rhinosporidiosis is a rare chronic granulomatous disease caused by rhinosporidium seeberi. Nasal rhinosporidiosis presents with nasal mass, nasal obstruction and epistaxis. In this study, we present our experience in 17 patients of rhinosporidiosis. Diagnosis was made on clinicopathological features. Different clinical presentations, management by surgical, combined with medical line of treatment are discussed with review of literature
