Rhinosporidiosis is chronic granulomatous disease of likely fungal etiology which usually affects the nasal mucosa. Extranasal manifestations of rhinosporidiosis are relatively uncommon. Laryngeal and tracheobronchial tree involvement is extremely rare and only six cases have been reported till date. Here we report a case of laryngeal rhinosporidiosis, which occurred in a patient with coexisting nasal rhinosporidiosis and was successfully managed surgically.
