Rhinosporidiosis can be diagnosed on the basis of fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). It is a chronic inflammatory disease characterised by hyperplastic polypoidal lesions of mucous membrane predominantly nose, oral cavity, conjunctiva and rarely skin and viscera. It is more common in males in the age group of 13 to 40 years. Cytologically, this condition is diagnosed by the presence of large number of round endospores of R. Seeberi with thick wall and transparent capsule and the spherical spores vary in size.
