Abstract

Rhinoscleroma (RS) is defined as a specific disease of chronic nature involving upper respiratory passages and nasal area and is caused by Klebsiella rhinoscleromatis bacilli. The diagnosis of RS is based on the identification of mickulicz cells (MCs). These cells are mostly seen during granulomatous phase & absent during the sclerotic phase. The present case report highlights the diagnosis and management of Rhinoscleroma.
