Recurrent Rhinolithiasis: A Case Report with Review of Literature

DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2012.030

Rhinolith is an uncommon nasal mass and a rare entity encountered in clinical practice. The typical symptoms of rhinolith are unilateral nasal obstruction, foul smelling purulent nasal discharge and epistaxis, crusting, swelling of nose or face, anosmia, epiphora and headache. In this report, we present a case of recurrent rhinolith manifesting as an incidental finding on dental radiographs. A 26-year old male patient with a history of long standing halitosis consultation by a dentist with an otolaryngologist had an operation for rhinolith seven years ago.
