 ABSTRACT

Rhinoscleroma (more appropriately ‘scleroma’) is a chronic, disfiguring inflammatory lesion that is rarely encountered in the present-day otolaryngology practice. The diagnosis often becomes difficult especially when it recurs and presents late with complications. This report illustrates the clinical and histologic features of rhinoscleroma in a defaulter patient who represents advanced-stage disease with orbital and intracranial extensions. Special emphasis has been provided on the computed tomography impressions such that the evolution of scleroma with time can be studied.
