Rhinosporidiosis is an infectious condition mainly affecting the nasal cavity and nasopharynx followed by eyes. Infection in other sites is very uncommon. Here is a case report of rhinosporidiosis in a very rare site, urethra. A 37 year old male presented with a six month history of polypoidal growth at the external urethral meatus. He resides in a village with a practice of open air defecation. On local examination, a small red fleshy lesion was seen at the external urethral meatus measuring 1 x 1 cm. The lesion was resected under spinal anaesthesia and cauterisation was done at the base. Histopathology showed features of rhinosporidiosis. Patient is on dapsone post-operatively to prevent recurrence.
