Epidemiological survey of rhinosporidiosis in kanyakumari district of tamil nadu india

, : Epidemiological survey of rhinosporidiosis in kanyakumari district of tamil nadu india. Mycopathologia 101(3): 177-180

One hundred and twelve nasal polyps received along with full history from three different hospitals of Kanyakumari district of Tamil Nadu during the period 1983-1987 were found positive for rhinosporidiosis on histopathological examination. Among the four taluks (countries) the majority of the cass (41.1 percent) came from Agastheeswaram, followed by Kalkulam (28.6 percent), Thovalai (17.0 percent) and Vilavancode (13.3 percent). The 11-20 years age group found to be highly susceptible (60 percent). There was no sex prepondence in contracting the disease as the cases were evenly distributed between both sexes. These findings exhibited the endemic nature of the disease in Kanyakumari district. Unreported cases to an extent of 9 to 40 percent were encountered during the ENT disease diagnostic camps conducted in nine high incidence villages. Further 8 more cases were detected in addition to cases attended in the hospitals and ENT camps when a complete enumeration of cases was undertaken in Pallam village. Thus the actual number of cases found in the district need a stratified random sampling.
