A young man presented with multiple Subcutaneous nodules over scalp, hand, feet and osteolytic lesions of small bones of hand. Clinically and radiologically he was diagnosed as a case of Giant Cell Tumour. Aspiration cytology and biopsy proved it to be rhinosporidiosis. Epidemiological study revealed that he perhaps contracted this infection as an occupational hazard. This is the third reported case of osteolytic lesions due to rhinosporidiosis. Diagnostic dilemmas of subcutaneous and osteolytic rhinosporidiosis are discussed.
