Rhinoscleroma is a chronic granulomatous disease caused by gram negative rod shaped bacteria Klebsiella rhinoscleromatis. Most common sites of predilection include the nasal cavity and nasopharynx, but there are reports of its occurrence at other sites like the larynx, trachea, bronchi, middle ear, and orbit. We are reporting here a case of rhinoscleroma in a middle aged female patient involving the nasal cavity along with a brief review of literature.

Keywords: Rhinoscleroma, mikulicz cells, chronic granulomatous infection.
