Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 21-year-old male from Kerala, south India, who had been living in Chandigarh for the last 4 years presented with a nasal polyp in the left nasal cavity. On histopathological examination, it was found to be due to rhinosporidiosis. This disease is not uncommon in south India, but few case reports have been documented from north India. This paper presents a case report of rhinosporidiosis from the Government Medical College and Hospital, Chandigarh, and a review of literature of the disease.
