Rhinosporidiosis is a chronic fungal inflammatory disease prevalent in India and Sri Lanka. Its manifestations are mostly nasal and extranasal lesions are relatively rare. Occasional atypical presentations of this disease lead to diagnostic dilemma. Herein we report on a case of nasopharyngeal rhinosporidiosis having extensive involvement of paranasal sinuses along with intracranial extension which mimicked radiologically as juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of rhinosporidiosis having intracranial extension...

A 41-year-old man from the state of Chhattisgarh, India, had a previous history of nasopharyngeal rhinosporidosis for 27 years, for which he had surgical intervention seven times, most recently endoscopically 2 months earlier. For the last 8 months, he had noticed skin lesions on the shoulders and forehead. Of interest was a history of bathing in ponds as a child. Examination revealed a soft, skin-colored, strawberry-shaped papule on the forehead (Figure 1A), a papule with a hemorrhagic crust on the left shoulder (Figure 1B), and a crusted friable plaque on the right shoulder (Figure 1C)...

BACKGROUND: Rhinosporidiosis is a rare chronic infection of the mucous membranes caused by the Rhinosporidium seeberi. Approximately 15% of cases of rhinosporidiosis are ocular, occurring mainly in the tarsal conjunctiva. There are only 11 cases of scleral melt with staphyloma formation associated with bulbar conjuctival oculosporidiosis and none of them was associated with partial regression of the scleral ectasia after a corneoscleral tectonic graft. CASE PRESENTATION: a 13-year-old girl with a progressively increasing black mass in the upper nasal part above the cornea of the left eye...

Sinonasal mass is the abnormal growth of tissue from nasal cavity and mucosa of the paranasal sinuses. The growth may be benign or malignant. The benign lesion grows slowly and does not metastasize. The malignant lesion grows rapidly and metastasizes early. The aim of this study is to evaluate and diagnose the various types of sinonasal masses with MRI and its correlation with histopathological findings. This cross sectional descriptive study was carried out for a period of 02 years, from July 2015 to June 2017...

Rhinosporidiosis is a common condition seen in India specially in endemic areas and in low socio economic areas. Here we present with a rare presentation of cheek swelling caused by obstruction of stenson's duct with a short history of 5 months. Sialolith of parotid duct is uncommon presentation but not unheard of, the subsequent treatment and further histopathology of the ductoceol reveled the causative factor for the obstruction of parotid duct was Rhinosporidiosis which a very rare presentation with very few cases reported in literature...

Occurrence of nasal, cutaneous and disseminated rhinosporidiosis in the same patient is uncommon and involvement of calcaneum is rare. Rhinosporidial osteomyelitis is treated surgically, but multiple recurrences and local spread are common. Many a times, surgical ablation or amputation of the involved area of the limb is carried out to prevent recurrences. We present a case of rhinosporidial osteomyelitis of the calcaneum with a chronic discharging sinus and large lytic lesion in the calcaneum treated by an alternative surgical option in the form of debridement and negative pressure wound therapy...

INTRODUCTION: Culture is the gold standard, while potassium hydroxide mount is simplest technique used for diagnosis of fungal pathogens. Histopathological examination is the only definitive means to identify certain uncultivable fungi. AIM: To analyse role of histopathological examination and potassium hydroxide (KOH) mount for diagnosing fungal infections by correlating them with culture. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this nine year retrospective study, all biopsy specimens submitted for microbiological examination were included...

Rhinosporidiosis is a granulomatous infection of mucocutaneous tissue caused by Rhinosporidium seeberi that most commonly occurs in the nasal cavity. Ocular rhinosporidiosis affects primarily the conjunctiva. Diagnosis of rhinosporidiosis is based on strong clinical suspicion and is confirmed by histopathological examination. We report a rare case of conjunctival rhinosporidiosis in an immunocompromised patient (human immunodeficiency virus) with disseminated cutaneous rhinosporidiosis. A 44-year-old male presented with a swelling in the right upper eyelid for 6 months...

Rhinosporidiosis, though reported from several countries, has the highest incidence in India (notably South India) and Sri Lanka, with most cases presenting as nasal polyps. Nasopharynx and palpebral conjunctiva account for 85% of the sites. Other mucosal sites affected are oropharynx, larynx, rectum and external genitalia. Disseminated rhinosporidiosis is usually associated with mucosal lesions. Rhinosporidiosis affecting skin, subcutaneous tissue and bone are uncommon. Herein we report a rare case of disseminated rhinosporidiosis mimicking a soft tissue sarcoma...

INTRODUCTION: Ophthalmic lesions show varied distribution on the basis of geographical location. Eye being a unique sensory organ needs to be studied both clinically and pathologically. AIM: This study was aimed to evaluate the histomorphological and clinico-pathlological spectrum of ophthalmic lesions at a tertiary care hospital of Central India. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed all the ophthalmic biopsies performed in the Department of Pathology of our institute between January 2008 and November 2014...

The present paper attempts to explore the socio-demographic profile of patients with rhinosporidiosis in an endemic area. A cross-sectional study was carried out in a tertiary-care hospital in Purulia district, India, including consecutive patients with histologically-proved rhinosporidiosis. Their socio-demographic profiles were obtained through a pre-designed proforma with given epidemiologic parameters. Data was statistically analyzed with inputs from literature review. Of the 39 patients included, 87 % were fresh/new cases...

Rhinosporidiosis is a chronic granulomatous mucocutaneous disease that is endemic in South Asia. It commonly affects men in the second to fourth decade of life. The most common site of infection is the nose or nasopharynx with primary involvement of the parotid duct noted very rarely; only four cases reported in literature. We report a case of a 77 year old male patient who presented with a subcutaneous cheek swelling with no other clinical features to suggest the diagnosis of rhinosporidiosis. An unusual affliction in a patient in the seventh decade of life, at a site not reported previously with no past history of the same makes it imperative to ascertain the known facts about both the organism and the disease...

Ocular involvement of rhinosporidiosis is seen in about 15% of cases and clinically appears as a freely mobile, granular, pink, fleshy sessile or pedunculated mass. The conjunctiva is the most common site of origin. A 25-year-old male presented with a painless mass in the lower part of the left eye for 6 months which was gradually progressive. Examination revealed a pedunculated mass of 15 mm x 15 mm arising from the lower palpebrae of the left eye retracting the lower lid. It appeared to be vascular with few white spots at the apex...

INTRODUCTION: Rhinosporidiosis is a chronic infection of the mucous membrane and is caused by Rhinosporidium seeberi, an aquatic mesomycetozoan. The mode of infection is probably transepithelial penetration. The large number of rivers and lakes and the strong presence of riparian populations in the State of Maranhão are strong predisposing factors for rhinosporidiosis. METHODS: A 5-year retrospective study was conducted in a tertiary medical center situated in Maranhão, Northeast Brazil...

This article reports a presentation of lacrimal sac rhinosporidiosis and informs the reader of this uncommon but important diagnosis. A 36-year-old man from Pakistan presented with a 3-month history of swelling at the nasal aspect of the left lower lid. This was associated with occasional crepitus and slight localised discomfort, but no epiphora. There was a palpable fullness near the left medial canthus associated with telecanthus but a normal sac washout and normal eye examination otherwise. Previous medical history included an ipsilateral nasal polypectomy and inferior meatal antrostomy around 10 years previously, whilst living in Pakistan...
