Rhinosporidiosis is a chronic granulomatous disease caused by fungus Rhinosporidium seeberi affecting most commonly the anterior nares. Urethral involvement is extremely rare. We present such a case in a 61-year-old man with intermittent bleeding per urethra and fleshy mass coming through the urethral meatus. On histological examination of hematoxylin-eosin-stained smears, the lesion showed numerous sporangia mixed with inflammatory infiltrates and occasional giant cells, beneath the urethral squamous epithelium. The mass was excised and fulguration of the base with diathermy was offered for cure.
