Rhinoscleroma is a chronic granulomatous infection affecting the nasal cavity and nasopharynx primarily. It results in functional and esthetic sequelae in patients. A patient presented to us with chronic extensive vestibular stenosis with external deformity of the nose. The patient underwent multistaged diagnostic nasal endoscopy with biopsy and recanalization using a sterile rubber catheter which showed significant clinical improvement. This case demonstrates that medical advancements have enabled a quicker diagnosis of rhinoscleroma and recanalization still remains an essential entity in managing the sequelae of rhinoscleroma.
