Isolated Primary Rhinosporidiosis of the Parotid Duct: A Rare Presentation.

Iran J Otorhinolaryngol 2020 May;32(110):193-196

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India, Pin-751019.

Introduction: The primary involvement of the parotid duct in rhinosporidiosis is very rare in clinical practice. Here, we present a case of rhinosporidiosis primarily involving the parotid duct, which was successfully excised through transparotid and transoral approaches.

Case Report: A 51-year-old male presented with a painless progressive swelling over the left cheek for nine months. Read More

Disseminated Cutaneous Rhinosporidiosis: Revisited.

Indian J Dermatol 2020 May-Jun;65(3):204-207

Department of Dermatology, IPGME and R and SSKM Hospital, Kolkata, West Bengal, India.

A vegetative growth in the nasal mucosa and nasopharynx present for a considerable period of time raises the possibility of rhinosporidiosis. Such presentation in the Indian subcontinent is not rare but erythematous cauliflower-like or tumor-like growths often reaching large size present on various areas of the skin without necessarily involving the nasal apparatus are often confusing to the attending clinician. A dermatologist may suspect the disseminated form of cutaneous rhinosporidiosis and perform a diagnostic histopathology. Read More

Laryngeal rhinosporidiosis: An airway catastrophe averted.

J Family Med Prim Care 2020 Feb 28;9(2):1248-1252. Epub 2020 Feb 28.

Department of Anesthesiology, Tata Main Hospital, Jamshedpur, Jharkhand, India.

Rhinosporidiosis is a type of nasal polypoidal growth arising from the mucosa of nasal cavity and often extending to nasopharynx. Occasionally, this growth may invade the lower airways and cause airway obstruction. The clinical presentation of such cases is often contradictory and airway management during induction of anesthesia requires caution to prevent potential life-threatening situations. Read More

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Balaji Dental and Craniofacial Hospital, 30, KB Dasan Road, Teynampet, Chennai, India.

Treatment of uncommon fungal infection such as Rhinosporidiosis is challenging, especially when occurring in a non-immunocompromised patient in non-invasive form. Extensive involvement, extending into maxillary jawbone would need aggressive, chemotherapeutic and surgical approach. There are few reports of successful rehabilitation of maxillary jaw with dental implants after treatment of such fungal infection. Read More

Evaluation of diagnosed cases of eye rhinosporidiosis in a public hospital of Maranhão, Northeast Brazil.

BMC Ophthalmol 2019 Nov 8;19(1):218. Epub 2019 Nov 8.

Department of Pathology, Ribeirão Preto Medical School, University of São Paulo, Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Brazil.

Background: Oculosporidiosis (ocular rhinosporidiosis) accounts for 15% of cases of rhinosporidiosis, which is a chronic granulomatous disease and is endemic in India and Sri Lanka. In Brazil, the climatic and hydrographic similarities to these endemic areas and the presence of riverside populations contributes to an increase in the incidence of rhinosporidiosis particularly in the State of Maranhão. This study, therefore, aimed to identify the number of diagnosed cases of oculosporidiosis and describe its the clinical epidemiology, laboratory, histopathology, and therapeutic characteristics.

Department of Otolaryngology, Union Hospital, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, 430022, China.

The aim of this study is to explore the expression of ECP in the neutrophils and its impact on the evaluation of nasal inflammation.Neutrophils and eosinophils in nasal secretions were collected and stained with ECP immunohistochemistry to observe the staining of ECP in different cells. The concentration of ECP and MPO in nasal secretion were detected of 32 patients with allergic rhinitis (AR group), 29 patients with chronic rhinosinusitis without nasal polyps and allergic rhinitis (CRSsNP group), and 21 healthy people (control group).

Next-generation sequencing for hypothesis-free genomic detection of invasive tropical infections in poly-microbially contaminated, formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue samples - a proof-of-principle assessment.

BMC Microbiol 2019 04 8;19(1):75. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Institute for Microbiology, Virology and Hygiene, University Medicine Rostock, Schillingallee 70, 18057, Rostock, Germany.

Background: The potential of next-generation sequencing (NGS) for hypothesis-free pathogen diagnosis from (poly-)microbially contaminated, formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded tissue samples from patients with invasive fungal infections and amebiasis was investigated. Samples from patients with chromoblastomycosis (n = 3), coccidioidomycosis (n = 2), histoplasmosis (n = 4), histoplasmosis or cryptococcosis with poor histological discriminability (n = 1), mucormycosis (n = 2), mycetoma (n = 3), rhinosporidiosis (n = 2), and invasive Entamoeba histolytica infections (n = 6) were analyzed by NGS (each one Illumina v3 run per sample). To discriminate contamination from putative infections in NGS analysis, mean and standard deviation of the number of specific sequence fragments (paired reads) were determined and compared in all samples examined for the pathogens in question.

Long-term use of Le Fort I osteotomy for the management of nasopharyngeal rhinosporidiosis: A case series.

Ear Nose Throat J 2018 Oct-Nov;97(10-11):E36-E43

Department of Craniofacial Surgery, Nitte Meenakshi Institute of Craniofacial Surgery, Deralakatte, Mangalore, Karnataka, India.

Rhinosporidiosis is a rare, chronic, granulomatous infection of the mucous membranes that mainly involves the nose and nasopharynx; it occasionally involves the pharynx, conjunctiva, larynx, trachea and, rarely, the skin. The characteristic clinical features of this disease include the formation of painless polyps in the nasal mucosa or the nasopharynx that bleed easily on touch. At our center, excision of the lesion with a Le Fort I osteotomy is carried out in patients (1) in whom two or more previous attempts at excision of biopsy-proven rhinosporidiosis arising from the nasal mucosa was carried out or (2) in whom the rhinosporidiosis arises from the nasophayrngeal mucosa and/or extranasal sites.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, Kasturba Medical College, Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Manipal, Karnataka-576104, India.

Rhinosporidiosis is a communicable disease prevalent in tropical countries that affects one or more mucocutaneous sites such as the nasal cavity, pharynx, skin, bronchus, genitals, and bone, in isolation or together. We report a case of multicentric rhinosporidiosis involving the nasal cavity, oropharynx, larynx, and cheek skin without disseminated disease outside the head and neck. Although the appearance of mucocutaneous lesions in our patient was similar to that of papilloma or neoplasm, the distinct clinicopathologic characteristics of the rhinosporidiosis guided us in managing the case successfully.
