Rhinosporidiosis is a chronic granulomatous disease caused by Rhinosporidium seeberi. It commonly affects young males and involves the mucous membranes of the nose, nasopharynx and eyes. Involvement of extranasal sites including bone has been rarely reported. Involvement of bone without associated mucocutaneous lesions is extremely rare in rhinosporidiosis. We report a case series of three rare cases of Rhinosporidiosis affecting the musculoskeletal system, involving the clavicle, distal interphalangeal joint of little finger, and lower limb Sartorius muscle.

Keywords: Rhinosporidiosis, Phalanx, Distal interphangeal joint, Clavicle, Sartorious, Soft tissue.
