Abstract: Rhinosporidiosis is an infectious mucocutaneous disease caused by Rhinosporidium seeberi. It is characterized by sessile or pedunculated polyps which are erythematous, moriform and friable and which mainly affect the ocular and nasal mucosa. The occurrence of skin lesions is occasional and due to dissemination from the adjacent mucosa, direct inoculation or hematogenous dissemination. The authors report the clinical case of an eight-year-old boy with an isolated lesion located in the medial epicanthus of the right eye.
