Abstract

Scleroma, more commonly known as rhinoscleroma, is u progressive, chronic, granulomatous disease of the respiratory tract and adjacent tissues. Early diagnosis and prolonged therapy are critical in avoiding its late sequelae. We describe an unusual case of scleroma presenting as worsening chronic lung disease. The variety of clinical presentations and treatment modalities is reviewed.
