Rhinosporodium: case report.


This is the first reported case of rhinosporidiosis in Ibadan, Nigeria. A review of literature shows that the patient came from northern Nigeria where the first case was reported in the country. The organism is difficult to culture and the diagnosis was based on microscopy and histological examination of the polyp. We present the case of recurrent rhinosporidiosis in a 16 year old girl a year after polypectomy in Zaria, northern Nigeria.
