An erosive mass involving the nasal cavity and maxillary sinus: rhinosporidiosis

Gürkan Keskin1, Emre Üstündağ, Sevgiye Kaçarözkara, Sinem Keskin

Rhinosporidiosis is a chronic granulomatous inflammatory
disease of the mucous membranes caused by
Rhinosporidium seeberi. The disease is endemic in
India but is very rare in other countries. A review of the
literature shows that our patient is the second documented
case from Turkey. The involvement and erosion
of the anterior wall of maxillary sinus as in this
case is very rare. In this article we describe the clinicopathological
features of a case presenting in 47-yearold-
male and discuss transmission of the disease.
