Rhinosporidiosis: three domestic cases.

Author information

  • 1Department of Pathology, St. Mary's Hospital, Athens, Ga 30606, USA.


Three cases of rhinosporidiosis in Americans who had not traveled abroad are reported. We believe this is the largest cluster of indigenous cases reported in the United States. The three patients had lived in rural northeast Georgia all of their lives. One had a polypoid conjunctival lesion, and the two others had nasal polyps. In each case, the diagnosis was made by demonstrating morphologically distinctive fungal elements in histopathologic sections. Clinically, rhinosporidiosis had not been suspected.
