Abstract

Rhinoscleroma is a chronic infectious disease that is endemic in certain poor areas of the world. The diagnosis often relies on pathology, the outcome is disappointing and then marked by recurrence. We present a retrospective series of six patients histologically diagnosed with rhinoscleroma. Some clinical and histological features of the disease are discussed below, as its adequate management implies a multidisciplinary approach.
