Abstract

Rhinoscleroma is a well-documented entity. However, rhinoscleroma associated with lymphadenopathy is a rare clinical entity. Here, we report a case of rhinoscleroma with cervical lymphadenopathy of Rosai–Dorfman histiocytosis in a 57-year-old female patient who presented to us with a history of nasal obstruction of 1-year duration and neck swelling of 2 months duration along with constitutional symptoms such as malaise.
