Rhinosporidiosis is a chronic granulomatous disease characterised by polypoidal lesions of the mucous membrane. Earlier, the disease was more prevalent in the Indian subcontinent, but in the recent era, the incidence of rhinosporidiosis is significantly reduced except for a few recurrent cases. We hereby present a case of recurrent of nasal rhinosporidiosis after initial surgical excision. The patient presented with a polypoidal, erythematous mass in the right nasal cavity for the past 2 years with complaints of nasal blockage, seropurulent discharge and occasional bleeding. Diagnosis was confirmed by nasal endoscopy and microbiological examination and was successfully treated by complete surgical excision, followed by regular check-ups.
