Abstract

Rhinosporidiosis is a fungal infection that commonly involves the nasopharynx. Involvement of the skin is uncommon. We report a case of disseminated cutaneous rhinosporidiosis in a 56 year old male who presented with multiple erythematous nodules and verrucous lesions over the malar areas, nose, and forehead along with nasal obstruction and dysphagia. He gave a past history of receiving treatment for nasal rhinosporidiosis. We report this rare case of disseminated rhinosporidiosis with cutaneous involvement.
