We report three cases of rhinosporidiosis from migrant population of Delhi. Three male patients had sino-nasopharyngeal, nasopharyngeal and nasal rhinosporidiosis, respectively. One patient gave a history of bathing in stagnant water. The diagnosis was made by clinical presentation and microscopic observation of characteristic sporangia of Rhinosporidium seebri in mycological and histopathological investigations. All the patients were successfully treated with complete surgical excision of lesions and cauterization of base. There were no recurrences.
