Rhinosporidiosis is a chronic granulomatous disease caused by Rhinosporidium seeberi, mainly affecting the mucous membrane of nose, nasopharynx, and eyes. Involvement of bone though rare has been reported along with other mucocutaneous lesions. But bony involvement without any mucocutaneous lesion is very rare and only few cases are documented. Here we report a case of rhinosporidiosis of distal radius without any other lesion, which has not been reported in English language-peer reviewed literature, to the best of our knowledge.
