We report a case of cutaneous rhinosporidiosis localized in the nasal philtrum. The patient's complaints started 3 months prior to being seen in our clinics. Ear, nose, and throat examination showed the presence of a polypoid lesion filling the right nostril. Complete surgical resection of the polypoid lesion provided a temporary relief as the patient developed the same lesion atin 6 weeks post-operation. The appearance and the recurrence pattern have led us to determine whether this lesion was rhinosporidiosis. Histopathological examination confirmed rhinosporidiosis. Finally, we performed complete resection followed by cauterization of the base of the mass. The infection has been reported in hot, tropical climates, and endemic zones of India and Sri Lanka. To our knowledge there is no reported case of rhinosporidiosis from southern Turkey within the subtropical Mediterranean climatic area.
