Rhinolith is an uncommon nasal mass in children and adolescents. We report a 8 years old boy with a long history of foul smelling right nasal discharge, progressive nasal obstruction and recurrent epistaxis, which were clinically suspected as being due to the presence of a long standing foreign body. The rhinolith of right nasal cavity was diagnosed on rigid endoscopic examination. Rhinolith was removed by using 00 rigid nasal endoscope. This article includes a brief review of the literature.
