Clinicians come across cases of palatal swellings that present with ambiguous features. They may vary in their etiology from numerous infectious and noninfectious causes to a wide array of neoplasms. Accurate diagnosis of such lesions is vital for their prompt and precise management. Rhinoscleroma (RS), as its name suggests, is a persistent, specific, granulomatous disease that results in sclerosis of the affected organ – most frequently the nose. Although its occurrence in the adjacent sites has been reported, the clinical findings did not offer much deviation from the expected. Reported here is a case of RS involving the palate which not only detoured from its usual site and course of spread but also gave off a confusing façade in terms of its clinical presentation.
