Rhinosporidiosis our experience

Dr T Balasubramanian Dr R Geetha.

This article discusses the personal experience of author in the management of rhinosporidiosis. Living in an endemic area of disease the author had the privilege of managing about 200 cases of rhinosporidiosis during 2005 to 2010. Commonest area of involvement happened to be nasal cavity. Inside the nasal cavity rhinosporidiosis was commonly seen arising from inferior meatus. All these patients gave history of bathing in ponds which could account for the common etiopathogenic factor. All the cases were managed by surgical resection followed by 9 months course of T Dapsone to minimize risk of recurrence. Despite these measures the author had a recurrence rate of about 19%. Imaging really provided a road map as majority of these lesions were removed endoscopically.

Key words: Rhinosporidiosis, experience, endemicity, Kanyakumari district, Tamilnadu, Nasal rhinosporidiosis common, rhinosporidiosis with septal perforation, dapsone prophylaxis, endemicity
