Morphological findings in serial nasal mucosal biopsies from three cases of rhinosporidiosis on dapsone therapy were compared with biopsies from 33 patients taken before dapsone or surgical treatment was initiated. All biopsies were examined by light microscopy and five by electron microscopy. Counts of histologically intact and degenerated organisms showed a decreasing proportion of intact forms with treatment.
