Rhinosporidiosis is a mucocutaneous infection, primarily involving the nose. It rarely presents as a disseminated disease, with a polypoidal lesion of the mucous membrane of the nose and its subsite. Rhinosporidiosis affects commonly the mucous membrane of the nasopharyngeal subsite, conjunctiva and palate. The causative organism is Rhinosporidium seeberi and this disease is more prevalent in tropical countries.
