Rhinoscleroma is a rare endemic disease in low socioeconomic settings characterized by nasal growth, nasal blockage, and epistaxis. The causative organism is not an usual nasal commensal, and diagnosis is often delayed. Characteristic Mikulicz cells should be visualized microscopically for definitive diagnosis. We present our experience of rhinoscleroma with unusual presentation of severe headache and orbital mass in three patients over an 11-year period in the pathology laboratory of a tertiary hospital.
